My Home timeline is getting overwhelming. Is there some app that'll help me rank my follows somehow and help decide which ones to drop?

Follow

@lightone Perhaps you're aware of such a tool? (Prompted by your boost of a Fediverse.party toot about new Fedi projects.)

@minoru You don't seem to follow too many people, by Fediverse standards ;). So, there's no ranking tool I know of. But you could try out Mastotool (github.com/muesli/mastotool) and, for example, see whom you interact with most. Maybe it'll help in making decisions.

Turns out I mention you a lot, but you rarely respond. 💔 LOL (Just kidding. The discrepancy is probably caused by your DMs being ephemeral.)

I don't think these stats will help me much, but thanks for the suggestion!

@minoru I almost always respond, even to strangers. It's my rule of politeness (very much dislike people who ignore messages, email, etc). :love: You can try muting some users who post too much (and unmuting them later, if in the mood)? Or exporting your current followers list, and unfollowing at random? Then see if you're missing anyone.

I hid boosts from a few people, and that helps, but not enough.

Or exporting your current followers list, and unfollowing at random?

I was doing something like that for a while: if I read something, and I feel like this is irrelevant to me, I see if I should unfollow the person who posted/boosted it. That worked for quite a while, but recently I made a mistake of following a lot of users in quick succession, and now I can't quite decide what's relevant and what isn't >_<

I'm reading up on some algorithms that might help solving this, maybe I'll build the perfect tool for this!
