O/T how to make that "tweet" thing go away

So does anyone else have a thingy on the left side of the screen that says' "tweets?"

I do. How do I make it go away? Where did it come from? Are they watching me? Should I get out the tin foil hat?

Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a smiley thingy discovered by L2L that is about as equally bizarre as this thread.

For those of us that use the Firefox web browser, use the Adblock Plus add-on and poof the tweety thingy goes by-by. Place the pointer over it, right click, choose and click 'Adblock Plus: Block image...'. then click 'Add filter', Wa-la and it it goes away.

PS. It can be unblocked if one should change their mind.

Wow! Of all the unnecessary add-ons! I would think that the things discussed on this board would be the LAST things you would want to "tweet" to the world!

SR changed since it went commercial. I miss the not for profit days. I also very much resent anyone profiting from the distress that brings folks here. I see this tweets button as a slap in the face to anyone who has ever been hurt by addiction. I hope it's removed quickly.
