How to hide annoying twitter post images

I have recently started to follow a very interresting Twitter user (DZone). However, their tweets always contain some PR image, which usually don't describe the topic of the article at all. That's why I started to search for a solution (how to hide image previews for specific Twitter account). This cannot be done in administration. It's doable by a custom AdBlockPlus filter though. 
Example tweets with previews before filter application:  How to create a filter:  Right click on your AdBlockPlus icon in your browserSelect "Options" Go to "Customize" tab.Add this filter selector in the textarea:twitter.com##div.tweet[data-name='DZone'] .AdaptiveMedia-photoContainer img
After Twitter page refresh, the tweets look like this:

This can be of course done for any of Twitter accounts that you follow. Just replace the "DZone" value in the data-name attribute in the selector.
