Link: “Twitter considers letting you limit tweets to ‘trusted friends’”

omg, “facets” is a feature I’ve wanted social media platforms to have for ages – a way to allow followers to subscribe just to certain topics (I’ve always thought of them as “channels”) instead of everything someone posts. And “trusted friends” is a feature I really really wanted Twitter to have like, over a decade ago. At this point it’s kinda too late for me to make much use of either of them, and Twitter has helpfully said they’re not actively developing either feature anyway, but 🤷🏻‍♀️ they’re still good ideas.
