    Any way to turn off the "tweets" button

    I notice a new Tweets button on the left edge of the browser. Any way to turn off this visual annoyance?

    I've used the UserCSS extension to do this, until/unless we get a switch.

    div#tb_wcont_wtb { display: none !important; }

    It is annoying. I hate scaling toolbars, etc. on the side (or bottom/top) of the screen that follow me around when they're something I have absolutely no interest in. It makes sense to utilize it for people that want it, but is there a button I can click somewhere to get rid of it?

    Another vote for the possibility of removing that button.

    Any word on this? Even a "no, we're not planning on that at the moment" would be nice to hear.

    Adblock+ can at least hide it... It's still there, but you don't need to see it.

    I'm thinking NoScript should handle it readily, too.

    That button is not, in fact, an intended new feature. It is a bug - something that apparently accidentally got turned on as part of the server tune-up work that, while paused momentarily, will be ongoing.

    So, please consider the button to be akin to our occasional downtimes - an inconvenience that'll go away when the maintenance is done (unless, of course, we see that folks are using it and like it, in general, in which case maybe it'll stay).
