(I’m getting this bullshit out of my system.)
Potential Twitter set-up:
- Tiny follow list, mostly read in a RSS reader via Feedbin’s brilliant integration.
- Everything else followed via lists, with the Pinned Lists feature in the first-party app.
As far as settings go, that depends on how the above works out. If I end up following a larger group of people than intended (for example, if the pinned lists and RSS integration don’t work well, as I’m sure Twitter would prefer) there will be no retweets in my timeline, I’ll constantly keep the chronological option switched on, and will maintain a significant list of filters.
I love third-party apps but am convinced they’re not long for this world. Honestly, even with this specific set-up the whole point is to make it easier to stay away from the empty-headed, addictive use of a platform that is designed specifically to inspire that behaviour. As such, I’ll have time limits in place, which is a big part of my life anyway what with having more than one job and actual responsibilities with actual consequences if they aren’t fulfilled.
Oh, and if you’re reading this and follow me over there please don’t be offended if I don’t [pound-sign]FollowBack. That’s just now I use these things and that is unlikely to ever change.
OK. Let’s see if that has flushed this nonsense from my mind, at least in its current state of heistant wreckage.
