@gingerrroot I especially find joy in muting almost all Bots. (Still think there should be a direct feature for it.) Algorithmic, random nonsense can be fun in small doses, but it so easily fills our Timelines with junk we don't really need when everyone we follow has different bots they like to boost. A lot of advice I've seen is just to disable boosts, but boosts with bots muted is a great compromise in my view.
