@pixelfed I liked the idea but it had 2 flaws:
- Most if the time it was lying: there were new post that I never saw below it
- When I click on it to unfold hidden posts, it would refresh the timeline, sending me back to the top, so I had to scroll scroll scroll back down to see the new content.

@pixelfed yeah my main issue with it was that I want my home timeline to show only stuff that I purposely followed.
If I wanted to discover new content, I'd go to the discover page.
Instagram added that feature to keep users cycling through endless posts for continued "engagement"
