Brittany came up with a way to use PixieBrix on Twitter. She built an extension that lets you mute keywords in a jiffy, without having to remember the text, and clumsily navigate the twitter settings to find the mute section. Smooth! Full blogpost and tutorial linked in our blog.

One cool fact he mentioned during the event: Using PixieBrix allows him to save ~2 hours of work a day by reducing the amount of repetitive tasks he needs to execute!
