I have mostly just been writing here, I still haven't been able to read on this platform as much as I do on Twitter. Something about the TL is off-putting. Just me?

@dearthofsid i am having the same problem, can't place my finger on it is it just the visual organization?


@Shudraism I think so. Twitter has a better UI.

@Shudraism Also, the lack of quoting as a feature is adding to it.

@dearthofsid Yes, I get the logic of people misusing the quote tweet to troll people, but I was using quote extensively for sharing stuff, especially if you want to add on, build on something. I don't think we will have people using quote-boost to troll in this platform, because unlike the Bird Site there is no incentive tied to it in terms of likes, and follows and stuff like that.

@Shudraism Spot on. Also, the whole sharing/quoting tweets here is a buzzkill.

@dearthofsid @Shudraism The default web-interface for mstdn.social is a lot like TweetDeck. Pinafore interface is more like the Birdsite. I'm not sure about mastadon.social's default UI though.

@dearthofsid @Shudraism Last suggestion (Truly, the last one). Go to Preferences -> Flavors -> Glitch Edition

Here's a preview
