How to bypass Twitter's "See more Tweets from" and "See what's happening" prompts
When you browse Twitter in a web browser without being signed in, you will soon run into roadblocks as Twitter displays "see more tweets from" and "see what's happening" messages after a brief moment.
The type of prompt depends on whether you are browsing tweets or individual conversations. The "See more Tweets from" prompt is displayed when you browse the posts of a Twitter user or organization that is on Twitter, and the "See what's happening" prompt is displayed when you open a tweet and read the replies.
Interestingly enough, there seems to be no prompt when you browse a tag on Twitter.
Twitter's prompt ask you to sign in to an account or sign up for one. While that may be a good option for some users, the lack of option to browse Twitter without account is an annoyance to others.
Nitter is a third-party Twitter instance that you may open in any web browser. It is a privacy-first speed optimized front-end for Twitter that offers the following benefits:
- Open Source.
- Requests go through the Nitter backend, no direct contact between client and Twitter.
- Support for RSS feeds.
The main downside to using Nitter is that it relies on instances, and some of these may go down at times or permanently.
The Nitter Instances Uptime page lists the instances, and you can pick one that is active at the time to browse Twitter. Once you have opened the instance in your web browser of choice, you may start using to browse Twitter content.
Use the search option to find content that you are interested in, or, simply modify the URL of the instance by copying the Twitter URL over (without the twitter.com part obviously).

Nitter is a useful service that is ideal for users who don't want to create a Twitter account or sign-in to one, but want to browse content posted on Twitter without being blocked from doing so. One downside of Nitter is that there is no way of interacting with content outside of reading and accessing it.
