    To be fair, Twitter will only show you the orbit you want it to show you. (Side note: Musk is apparently the last person on Earth to realize that Twitter has two modes: Home (which uses an algorithm to show you preferred Tweets), and Latest (which is where your timeline is only who you follow, not the algorithm, AND in chronological order). And he's also the last to realize that every fucking Twitter user has it set to Latest because we don't want the algorithm bull**** either.)

    So the only reason I saw the bull**** from Freedom Machine Lovers was because a political researcher I follow got dragged into it (Caroline Orr Bueno).

    My Twitter would never have shown me otherwise.


    Facebook is ****. I think it once again is forcing Breitbart ads and other right-wing crao only because my HS connections are of that mindset. LinkedIn is corporate safe Facebook and also has creeping RW content. Twitter can be tamed. TikTok is where I spend most of my days due to the damn accurate algorithm showing me only what I like (unless they tweak the system, then the algorithm goes off the rails for a day)
    Yeah if you don't use "Latest" on Twitter you are doing it wrong.

              The best way to use Twitter (aside from not using it at all) is to make a separate list of people you care about and then follow the list. No algorithm, no promoted tweets. The only major drawback is even if you mute a word or phrase it still shows up if someone in your list uses it, so I still get bombed with Wordle updates just after midnight.

              • I don't have notifications on unless I'm mentioned or it's a dm or something. I scroll by all that Wordle bs.

                          The ****ty things about lists are you don't see replies. Only direct posts and retweets.

                          but otherwise that's like 95% of my browsing

                              Well, if I'm following someone, usually the good discussion is in the replies, not always in the original tweet. But I can see in many cases why someone would want to avoid the comments. I just try to cultivate lists worth reading the comments.
