Hide the Twitter “Litter” in Twitter’s Sidebar Area (Chrome and Iron)

Are you tired of looking at all of the litter in Twitter’s sidebar such as “who to follow suggestions, trending topics, and those useless definitions”? Now you can hide all or just part of them as desired with the Hide Twitter Guff extension for Chrome and Iron.
