@julianruf It's an interesting problem. The federated timeline seems too massive to interact with regardless of languages, but I imagine local timelines are also unwieldy for larger instances.
@lackaff Absolutely. Some kind of language filtering is definitely needed in order to be able to follow at least the local timeline. In the past the current opt-out solution has worked relatively well, I don’t know why it doesn’t work very well right now.
Opt-in filtering of course would be even cooler but there seem to be too many technical obstacles.
