Please note that the Not At SXSW browser extensions have been discontinued and no longer work. This blog post has been left for reference.
Hi, I'm Jake Archibald, user-wellbeing developer at Lanyrd International Incorporated Industries. It might be tempting to simply tolerate a Twitter stream like above, but unfortunately prolonged exposure to this brand of gushing joy, in-jokes and camaraderie can lead to violent emotional and/or physical outbursts.
At Lanyrd, we worried about how this may affect your loved ones, so we locked our science boffins in a room and refused to feed them until they developed an antidote. Well, they emerged earlier today, hungry and holding aloft the Lanyrd "Not At SXSW" browser extension.
The Lanyrd "Not At SXSW" browser extension hides tweets from people we know are attending SXSW, along with any tweets mentioning SXSW, leaving you with tweets from people who are having the same not-at-SXSW experience as yourself.
You can click to show the tweets again, but Lanyrd is not responsible for the outcome. If you need to hide more, you can add your own set of terms to hide.
The extension will become inert after March 16th, by which time everyone should have returned to normal.
Protect your mental health, install the "Not At SXSW" browser extension today!
