I suggest you ...

add a filter to block foursquare and gowalla.

or indeed any custom filter. This could be achieved easily by allowing operators such as '-term' or 'NOT term' to the existing filter system.

        3 votes added. twitterfeed is more often spam than not these days, and rather than block individual accounts (slow and painful), I would like to block twitterfeed completely. Ditto for twittbot.net.

        Keep in mind that we need both blocks and filters for tools used to send tweets. Blocks to eliminate spam/noise (which is on the rise in twitter) and filters to channel content. For example, for foursquare, I might like to filter it out of the main tab on my dashboard when I'm on my desktop/laptop, but when I'm on a mobile device and on the go I might not want to filter it out because I'm interested in that sort of content. In this case, filters would be important because they would enable me to create a Mobile tab on my dashboard for all content that is important to me when I'm on a mobile device while at the same time allowing me to hide all of that noise from the other tabs that I use for non-mobile purposes.
