Well, the World Cup hasn't even properly started yet and I have had enough. The radio, TV, Twitter and the rest of the internet won't shut up about it - my phone even asked me this morning if I wanted to have updates, to which I answered no.

I really do dislike football, so when my Twitter feed fills up with things about the World Cup, it really gets on my nerves.

So, I wrote a Chrome extension, Bye World Cup. that removes all Tweets containing the words "World Cup". Of course, it is case insensitive and doesn't care about spaces. It checks your feed every 5 seconds for any nasty tweets, so they may temporarily appear (unless anyone knows of another way?)

It is also available as a Bookmarklet, and is on GitHub.
