@BrLil6015 check your settings. I believe you have to set it to
Aggressively block ads & trackers for it to do its thing.
@Saoiray sorry, should have mentioned it happens on both Agressive and Standard mode for me.
@BrLil6015 What filters do you have? If not enabled, I’d recommend to activate the two below:
@BrLil6015 try adding this into brave://adblock

@Saoiray I have default filter lists. I used to have both these annoyances lists but the sponsored tweets were still showing.
@fanboynz Thank you ! I added the filter and, indeed, the sponsored tweets disappeared. Although I still see the sponsored header “Tweet sponsorisé” as you can see here :
Yeah, no easy fix for the title, but that should help. If you can test, ensure it doesn’t cause issues. I can roll it out globally.
It’s already helping a lot indeed. Will test it more in depth tomorrow just to be sure but it seems good enough yea.
@fanboynz not really an easy one to test tbh but I didn’t notice any obvious issue since applying the filter. So looks good to me if you want to apply it globally! Thanks again.
