The other day I complained that Mastodon did not have a “this post has replies” indicator. I was wrong.

Post Activity in Mastodon - to show or not to show

For the most part I appreciate the design decision that the #mastodon developers made to not show reply/boost/fave numbers on the feed lists, because it puts more focus on the content and less on gaming an algorithm for popularity or “engagement”.

but I also realize that this makes it harder to know if there are responses! For example, this post by Jun on #playviscious actually has an interesting thread that I’m learning from, but nothing in the UI signifies that there is more content to find connected to the post.

I wonder if there could be an additional affordance in the #UI that there are replies (boosts and faves not so much)?

My response to agreeing with something online should be “say so and amplify it”, not “say something clever and self-centering” #amplifytruth

I get what Twitter is trying to do, but I fear any system on Twitter the uses the community is going to get botted and dogpiled same as now. http://monkinetic.blog/2020/02/24/#txt-3aa96d5
