Block and mute early
Block and mute often
Do it for reasons that are entirely "selfish"
No one is entitled to your attention
There will not be a test
Nothing bad happens if you don't hear them
Too many techbros? Mute 'em all
That one guy's jokes need a CW? Your timeline can be full of other stuff
You can even mute that one person's boosts while keeping their posts
It's not censorship; you're not hurting that person
And you don't ever need to explain it or tell anyone
@bgcarlisle I read a post similar to this when I first joined fedi and it helped me kill the anxious and stressed twitter user in my brain So Much. ❤
@bgcarlisle it did! And inversely it also helped me actively approach and engage with other users more. Twitter definitely feels more stratified because "popular" posters are (understandably) less likely to even read their notifications let alone reply to the hundreds of people trying to piggyback off their jokes for trickle-down notes. 🙄
