What is ThreadHelper?
ThreadHelper is a sophisticated Chrome extension designed to augment your Twitter experience. This tool substitutes Twitter's stock search bar, offering full-text search over your past tweets, retweets, bookmarks and replies. It enables complete interaction with the tweets directly from the sidebar, removes the necessity of opening new Twitter tabs, and implements a 'shuffle tweets' feature for new content discovery. ThreadHelper is built with user's data safety in mind, never uploading any of your information anywhere other than Twitter.

ThreadHelper totally rocks. To cite my own tweet, "it feels like a shortcut to a couple of extra dimensions. I'm super powerful" which is absolutely true.
