In March 2017 we released a software tool called Supermute. It's an app designed to give you more control over what you see in your Twitter feed. It lets you temporarily mute entire accounts based on keywords they say in their tweets. Things you can do with it include:
- avoiding spoilers (set up a week-long Supermute for that new movie until you can see it on Saturday)
- muting anyone who uses harassing keywords for a block of time
- pretending really popular events don't exist (don't care about the Oscars? just supermute "Oscar" for six hours the night of the ceremony)
People have said nice things about Supermute!
Guys and gals, can't stress how great this is. My timeline is forever changed!

Oh my god this feels so goodBut in order to support our growing base of users and feature requests, we're going to need some money. We need about $100/month to host this software in a truly robust way that lets us monitor and fix things as they break. And we need about $1000/month to make this a sustainable part-time software development project that we can give what we think is the amount of love and attention it deserves.
