Filter Twitter Home feed to Exclude a keyword.

I noticed your software does NOT include a way to exclude tweets containing a keyword or phrase from the Twitter Home feed.  This would be a very important feature to implement, especially considering the current political climate in the United States.  

This single feature would solve lots problems with social media...
It would remove political tweets.
It would remove racist tweets.
It would remove sexual tweets.

All you have to do is create a function that searches for a regular expression.
It propagates through the array of tweets in the feed.  If a tweet is found with that matching expression, a boolean flag is set and that tweet is set to a status where it is hidden from the feed.
