$200 in BTC for MSM Blocker Browser Extension

Here's what it does:

  • Once every 4 hours, it scans headlines on homepages of NYTimes, Fox News, Huffington Post, CNN and Washington Post
  • If there is a headline that contains the same word on 2 or more of the sites (excluding articles like "a", "the" and pronouns), it uses some type of fuzzy-filtering to grey out all appearances of all versions of this headline on all social networks, especially twitter.

It must work in Firefox 57+, and ideally it would work in other browsers as well (via WebExtensions). Released under some open source license.

If you like this idea and want to pitch in, feel free to post a comment below or tweet at me.
