2018-09-03 Unfollowing Lurkers

A direct message reminded me of another way you might want to trim the list of people you are following. Following too many people is a burden. When I see that it is taking too long for me to read all the new toots, it’s time to trim the list. I prefer to follow less people instead of not reading all the toots.

So I’ve added a following command to mastodon-archive. You can list the people you’re following who never mentioned you, and if you’re hardcore enough, you can unfollow them all.

This can probably use some fine-tuning:

  1. editing the list before submitting it?
  2. having exceptions for your favourite bots?

If you have strong opinions either way, let me know.



Released v1.1.0 of Mastodon Archive which includes this feature.
