Question Turn off Tweets

So I logged in today and found this annoying tweets things hovering at the side. Can I turn it off somehow?

Re: Turn off Tweets

+1 it seems pointless

twitter is the worse idea ever. not sure how it became so big (guessing they just paid a load of celebs to brag about it)

Re: Turn off Tweets

I would like the ability to turn it off. It gets in the way when forum is set to full screen

Also, is there any need for it? The tweets that are in there so far seem to be about server/forum setup. Wouldn't that be handled by the site news section? Or is it a case of having two outlets for the same piece of info?

Re: Turn off Tweets

Ive seen sites with a ****ter thing the same but its like a little birdie that pokes out only few pixels and about the same wide (id say about the same size as the check boxes)

MUCH more standable.

I only use an older eeepc laptop with a 7inch screen and its annoying on there
