Nitter - Access Twitter without ads and tracking.


Nitter1 is an open source alternative front-end for Twitter. It allows you to access Twitter content without privacy-invading tracking and annoying ads. A twitter account is not required. Creating Nitter accounts including timeline support is on their roadmap.

There are several public servers/instances2 available, just pick one from the official list on the website linked below.

The URL structure is simple: just replace “” with the URL of your chosen instance. For example


Alternatively, you can host your own private or public instance.

While I’d love to see more people moving to the Fediverse/Mastodon there still is a lot of good content on Twitter. Nitter is a great way to access said content without being tracked.
