How to make Twitter auto scroll
Take the hard work out of reading through your Twitter feed. (Twitter)

Trawling through all your tweets can become a tedious and fiddly business if you're using a laptop or similar device that doesn't have an auto scroll facility. Unfortunately, Twitter doesn't supply a function that allows users to automatically scroll through their messages, but a few small developers provide browser add-ons that will allow you to sit back while your screen slowly, or at speed, scrolls down the length of your Twitter feed.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Download an auto scroll add-on for your browser such as AutoScroll for Google's Chrome, ScrollyFox for Mozilla's Firefox or the AutoScroll extension for Opera. If you can't find an auto scroll add-on for your favourite browser, consider downloading a new one that an add-on exists for.

  2. 2

    Read the operating instructions for your new add-on. Find out how to start your Twitter feed scrolling and whether you can alter to speed at which your page will travel. Some add-ons will also allow you to scroll up and have page refresh options.

  3. 3

    Log into your Twitter account and scroll your feed as per the instructions in your add-on's user guide. Your page scroll may pause if it's travelling at a high speed and reaches the bottom of your feed before more tweets are automatically loaded. This could be a particular problem if you're using a slow Internet connection.

Tips and warnings

  • Check the reviews of any add-ons you plan to download before installing them. Add-ons can contain malware, so it's wise to avoid programs that have no reviews.
