Although it’s been a real delight to see so many people joining Mastodon over the past few weeks, I’ve found that there’s also a disadvantage that I hadn’t expected: I’m spending a lot more time scrolling through Mastodon these days than I ever have since setting up my Mastodon accounts.
When I began setting up Mastodon accounts and shifting away from Twitter back in April, I felt like I had made a big leap forward in terms of my online consumption.
Lists are great to avoid this. You can have carefully curated lists and primary follow those.
I regret not having set up my lists from the start though, doing it when you’re tens or hundreds of subscriptions down is tedious.
