    So, Twitter uses JavaScript heavily and we all know the dangerous of JavaScript, expecally if the three lettered organisations are involved. Does anyone know of a way to use Twitter desktop version without JavaScript, even if it means using third party websites/programs. If it is a program, must listen to VPN and SOCKS proxies.

    Javascript is a client side language, so you can easily check any connections in developer tools :D

    You can also download Disconnect for chrome, which blocks google analytics and most other javascript tracking scripts, if that's what you're concerned about.

    I'm pretty sure if the "three lettered organisations" wanted to steal your information, they wouldn't only rely on Javascript to obtain it.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure the huge fibre cables that run straight into their offices are more reliable than Twitter's heavy JavaScipt usage.

    i think you're over doing it man :) i mean come on, seriously you thin Twitter javascript would be the problem considering all the ways they could do that? :) Why don't you just simply stop using twitter, that's the safest course ;)
