I have lost count the amount of time that I have accidentally closed an important tab. This can be annoying especially when what you closed was something important such as being in the middle of an important tweet.
If you want to avoid accidentally closing the tab you had Twitter open in; then you need the App for Twitter Chrome extension. It’s a free app you can install right now, and that will help you open Twitter in a separate popup window.
How to Open Twitter in a Different Popup Window with App for Twitter
The first thing you need to do is to install the App for Twitter Chrome extension. Once you have it installed, you should see the Twitter icon beside the rest of your extensions. A new tab will automatically open giving you a general idea of what you can do with App for Twitter. If you scroll all the way down, you will see the FAQ section as well.
The popup window where you’ll now be able to use Twitter will allow you to do everything you normally would. You can read your messages, Retweet, DM, Read Tweets, Etc. There are absolutely no restrictions, and you can even blow up the popup window to a full size of you want.
You will know that the App for Twitter window is open because it will display an icon on your computer’s taskbar. With the icon down there, it’s almost impossible that you’ll accidentally close it. When you actually do close it, you’ll only need to tap on the extension icon to open the window and sign in.
If you want, you can choose to get browser notifications for Follows, Messages, and likes. I think you’ll also like that App for Twitter is not only available for Chrome. You can also use it on other browsers such as Opera and Firefox. This is a great option since many users probably use more than one browser anyway.

Even if you close your browser, you will still be able to use Twitter. It’s not until you close that window that it will be closed. The window of the extension is res to whatever size you wish. Once you close the window, you won’t have to worry about any background activity. I’m sure this comes as a huge relief to its users. If Twitter ever makes you waste too much time and you see that yo’re less productive than before there are Chrome extensions for that too.
App for Twitter is a must-have extension for any Twitter user. This is a Chrome extension I am keeping on my browser since I want to say good-bye to accidental tab closures. The extension is very easy to use and makes everything a whole lot easier. Do you think you’ll give the Chrome extension a try anytime soon? Leave a comment and let me know.
