Not at Cannes? This Twitter Cannes Blocker Might Make You Feel Better
Chrome Extension Destroys Bragging Tweets
Jun 23, 2015
If you're not at Cannes, you might already be sick of seeing people tweet photos of their hotel room with a gorgeous view of the Mediterranean, or reading brags about cocktails on yachts. But fear not: Toronto agency Union has come up with a way to block these posts from your timeline for the duration of the Lions -- and even destroy them.
Cannescellation is a Chrome extension that replaces any Cannes-related content in the Twitter timeline with a video of the offending tweet being destroyed. As Mike Takasaki, associate creative director at Union explained a statement: "For the past few years, as soon as Cannes starts, my Twitter timeline has become nothing but shots of people on boats, people drinking rose, people flaunting what a great time they're having. We wanted to do something for all the people stuck back at the office covering for them."
