Is it possible to read a user's twitter account without enabling javascript? The mobile and desktop versions are both now dependent on js.

I can read them just fine with javascript disabled.

You could try a third-party client. Twidge is a command line client. I don't remember exactly how it works, but it was useful for making a bot.

In desktop mode how do you load a user's older tweets? They do not load without JS.

You're right I can't.

Most things work without js, and those that don't are often not worth your time anyway.

>Most things work without js, and those that don't are often not worth your time anyway.

This is a good point. When I used to encounter sites that required js to display at all, I'd usually enable js (which took several round of "Allow this..." since they all wanted to load additional shitty js) enough to at least read the content. Now I don't bother. People who aren't publishing garbage don't put it behind walls of js. And 99% of what's on Twitter is fucking garbage.

Here's my story.
At first it started as autism when I was using tor, but after a while I enjoyed viewing websites like actual documents.

I just opened chromium to use a javascript heavy site. I have ublock origin and umatrix configured, plus most settiings manually set so I can lock down the browser except javascript because that's the only thing I use it for.

Once I opened the site, I clicked somewhere out of sheer muscle behaviour, a small pop-up in the right corner appeared even though I have them disabled, then it maximized itself, then a new tab appeared, when trying to close the tab I was asked if I was sure I want to close the tab by chromium and when i closed the pop-up the entire browser crashed.

I can't handle this shit. Once qutebrowser gets whitelisting capabilties thanks to the new config rework maybe I'll whitelist some sites I visit really often but fuck all other sites.
