Twitter did a silly thing today. It took away its neutral star icon and turned it into a smarmy heart. Turns out, it’s extremely easy to replace that heart. Let me help you with this technique from Robert McNees.

Step 1: Download the Stylish extension for Chrome or Firefox. (There are a host of other extensions to restyle the web, but Stylish is super easy to use.)


Step 2: Open Stylish and paste this block of code into the main window:

.HeartAnimationContainer {
visibility: hidden;
.HeartAnimationContainer:after {
content: ‘🍺’;
visibility: visible;
display: block;
position: absolute;

Step 3: Replace the beer emoji with the emoji or character of your choice, although the beer emoji is a good choice. You should also make sure the one line of code beneath “.HeartAnimationContainer {” and the four lines beneath “.HeartAnimationContainer:after {”are indented four spaces.

Step 4: Add “” to the “Applies to:” field below the code. This is what the window should look like when you’re done:


Step 5: Click Save.

Step 6: Go to Twitter and beer all the tweets your heart desires!

[Thanks @mcnees!]
