If you’re as tired of logging on to Twitter only to see nothin’ but Bieber trending, you’re not alone. A web designer has created a browser tool that will spare you of any and all Bieber mentions.
From The Telegraph:
The Shaved Bieber application, which users can add to their browser by saving it as a bookmark, covers up all instances of the words “Justin Bieber” and “Bieber”, as well as any photos that include Bieber in their file names.
The tool is likely to prove particularly popular on Twitter, where the incessant tweeting of his teenage fans ensures that Bieber’s name is rarely absent from lists of trending topics, which reflect the most talked-about subjects on the site.
Shaved Bieber, which can also be downloaded as Firefox add-on, is the work of web designer Greg Leuch, a member of the Free Art and Technology online creative collective.
He has previously devised a plug-in that converts text from upper case to lower case, in reaction to the caps lock-heavy blog posts of rapper Kanye West.
Personally, I’m digging the Biebdawgs, but this kind of thing would be useful for all sorts of things. The Pratts, ex-boyfriends, a blogger you can’t stand (not me, of course.) Who would you use this kind of technology to wipe off your Interwebs?
