If you’ve managed to get access to the newest version of the Twitter web site, also known as #NewNewTwitter, you might have noticed that the content is now on the right-hand side, which just feels unnatural. Here’s how to fix it in Chrome or Firefox.

It’s pretty simple—all you need to do is install a quick user script. Chrome users can simply click the link, but Firefox users will need to install the Greasemonkey extension first. Internet Explorer users… well, you’re out of luck.

Disclaimer: This is a simple script and shouldn’t break your browser, but if it does, it’s not my fault. If you want to uninstall the user script, you’ll want to open up Tools –> Extensions and you can disable it from there.  Note: user scripts break all the time when the original site is updated. This one is pretty simple, but if you are reading this next year, it probably won’t work.
