We all want high quality content on our timelines. It’s just I’m not convinced I want Twitter deciding what is quality and what isn’t.
That is what’s happening to your Notifications. Where before you just had All or Mentions, there’s now Settings. Click this on and you’ll see they have already decided that you want the Quality filter switched on.
Twitter tells us that “when turned on, it filters lower-quality content, like duplicate Tweets or content that appears to be automated — it does not filter content from people you follow or accounts you’ve recently interacted with”. So it does filter content from accounts I’ve not recently interacted with. I don’t want that, I’m happy to put up with duplicates, and I actually want to see some automated stuff because it’s our business!
We say #TakeControlOfYourTwitterTimeline but it will never catch on as a hashtag as it’ll probably be filtered out!
