Use of Zip

Zipping content is a great idea though I think it needs to be a bit smarter than single hashtags and names.  One specific thing I wish to remove is automated by giantbomb.com for a friend and every day announces how many achievements he "unlocked" on various platforms.

 

I do not wish to zip the guy entirely, and there are no hashtags.  The best I can do is "I Unlocked" but Slices takes that to be "I" and or "Unlocked" which is not going to work because it will catch other content.  Why not allow for quotation marks to filter content?

Agree we should support quotes in zips.  Will look at adding.  We are also looking at being able to zip by source.

is it possible to use zip it to simply remove retweets of repeats - often have the same post multiple times in my timeline - either retweeted or tweeted by multiple sources but the tweet is exactly the same - gets quite repetative and time consuming sometimes - only want to see it once

If several people you follow retweet the same tweet it should only show once in your timeline.  However, if multiple people your are following retweet the same tweet with comments you will see it multiple times (with their comments).  If several people you are following tweet the same link, each tweet of that link will show up in your timeline.  Zip does not provide a way to filter these.  Interesting idea to see if we could.
