Keeping up with all the president’s tweets is a full-time job, but it’s also soul-shattering one. There’s got to be a better way! 

An angel in the guise of software engineer Steve Goldberg created a Chrome extension that replies to Trump‘s tweets for you. Specifically, it replies “Shut up, Donny,” a SFW version of a recurring line from The Big Lebowski, which made an appearance at Saturday’s Women’s March. It also tells Trump to delete his account. 

However, as of Tuesday afternoon it appears Twitter has blocked the extension from replying.  

Goldberg did tell A.V. Club that the more users, the funnier. So c’mon, Twitter. Live a little.
