Too many people are retweeting to the point that I get sick of reading the same stuff again and again.

How can I filter out retweets?

What app/interface are you using? Tweetdeck supports this, but AFAIK, the standard Twitter site does not. –  phantom42 Jan 24 at 14:13

There is no way to filter from the web UI all retweets.

What you will need to do is go to each profile you follow, then:

  1. Click the gear icon
  2. Select Turn off Retweets

Do this for every user you follow that you do not want to see what they retweet.

That didn't work for me. I found the gear icon on their profile, and turned off retweets, but I still see retweets, even after refreshing the user's profile page. It's maddening that I can't just focus on their occasional actual tweets. –  nealmcb Aug 29 at 20:12
    
This setting doesn't affect their profile page AFAIK, just timelines. –  James Thomas 15 hours ago
