I'm usually a bit confused when people say that following someone on social media means endorsing them in some way, or worse, when they act upon discovering that someone follows someone. Case in point: I accidentally imported Fedifinder's list of not just my birdsite's follows, but also my followers - and my timeline sure needs some curation now 😫

It did made me follow some great accounts I probably wouldn't find otherwise, so it's not all bad!


That said, I think that given good curation tools, an optional timeline consisting not of your follows', but your followers' posts could nicely augment already existing local and federated timelines. I've got more than twice as many followers than follows here on the fediverse and I'm sure there are some people I'd like to follow in there - it just isn't easy to browse through 100s of accounts 😞
