Killing the Twitters in the forum platform
« on: June 29, 2015, 11:19:04 AM »
I notice that the forum software has a Twitter notification module in use (although not shown). It's causing Ghostery to hang Firefox every time I visit the site for the first couple of minutes, as soon as I open any thread page.

It's caused by the "Tweet report to moderator" and "Tweet" buttons.

Since no one tweets from the site, never mind tweeting moderators, shouldn't we kill that?

I don't want to stop using Ghostery (you'd be horrified the tracking stuff that most sites have), and it's prob just slowing down page loads for all users as every time you hit a page it also has to hit twitter servers.
