Make tweets by @realDonaldTrump Comic Sans Again

Last night on Twitter, formatting DJT’s tweets in Comic Sans scrolled by. This morning, it seemed like a good Chrome extension to write. I wasn’t the first to write one to do this.

It also works on sites that embed his tweets. Below, the Washington Post:

You can see another example at NJ.com.

You can install it at the Chrome webstore. Here’s a pretty picture of what you’ll see there:

And source code is here for people who want to play with it: https://github.com/deanhach/TrumpSans

Caveats

.It is a little flakey… sometimes I need to hit refresh on twitter.com for the fonts to change.

Also, it needs to handle the case of scrolling to the end of the twitter page and the dynamic reload. I’ll go work on that now.

I guess another feature would be replacing these tweets with puppies.

Thanks
