Is it possible to set up a script or macro to run periodically on my Gmail inbox?

There are certain kinds of recurring mail I'd like to be able to archive automatically every once in a while. (Example: Mail that includes "is now following you on Twitter", mail from Google+, mail with headers from email lists I subscribe to.)
Here's the problem: I DO want these emails to go to my inbox. But I don't want to have to interact with them beyond that -- just seeing the subject is all I need out of that kind of email.
Setting up a filter to archive this kind of mail means I'll just plain never see them, and I do at least want to see them. But it's also annoying to have to do an inbox search for these recurring mails every couple of days to clear the clutter.
What are my options, if any?
