Chrome Extension Fixes Twitter's Grammar, Tells Us "Whom" We Should Follow

All is right with the world, as genius (and Googler!) Thomas Steiner has made this beautiful Chrome extension that corrects Twitter’s subject/object discrepancy on its “Who to Follow” feature. Grammar snobs (I KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU COMMENT), rejoice!

In case anyone’s still confused about “Who” vs. “Whom” usage, here’s a quick tip to differentiate courtesy of Shit You Should Know:

“To determine proper usage of who/whom, separate the who/whom clause and pose it as a question.  If that question can be answered with “he”, use “who”; if it can be answered with “him”, use ‘whom’.”

You can change your entire life by downloading the extension here. Now if only Steiner would make one that eliminated all the typos on TechCrunch.
