5) Sophisticated keyword/user/hashtag muting (time-based & permanent). Your trend is annoying/you're annoying. I never want to hear/read the word fediverse again.
6) Some mechanism to find mastodon accounts from the twitter account you follow. This is probably an opportunity for a different service - but integration into a client would be good
7) Multiple account support
7a) Every post/reply dialog has a "account to reply from" popup selector.
*) Just copy all UI and functionality of TweetBot
(Getting to the nice to have…)
8) Auto-delete posts. This stuff shouldn't last forever (should be built-in to service)
9) Tools to help manager followings
9a) Mass unfollow tools
9b) Ability to (privately) fav or tag users or add notes to accounts.
10) Subscribe to public blocklists. I assume the russian trolls are here already?
@schwa The web client has a lot of these, I think – disable reblog/boost, ignore content warnings, muting (‘filters’ in settings), auto delete posts, and follow/following management (in settings). Apps are definitely a bit spotty in which features the expose! I don’t think any of them make everything available.
@Gargron For the record, it wasn’t a complaint. I like the local timeline and think it’s important, for example. You don’t. That’s fine. It encourages me to find another client. I don’t have to hate your decisions in your client to want something else. And that’s great. 😀
@Gargron …I probably should have said it's not important for you for your client. And you're probably right for the general case!
@jwisser ooh, gonna have to check this out. I really enjoy Toot! but this might be worth a shot, as long as it has custom emoji support, etc
@schwa there used to be something called the bridge for finding your Twitter friends on Mastodon instances, but I think Twitter revoked API access 🙃
@b_cavello yeah makes sense they’d do that. But if folks who leave Twitter want to be found they could always post mastodon links in their bio. I don’t think Twitter could stop anyone from scanning bios.
