One of the things I liked about birdsite is that I could selectively disable retweets from people that I didn't want to see retweets from. That feature still works, but is now completely useless. Instead of retweets, they started to show *likes*. And you can’t disable those.
@vasilis That also makes me engage less. Since they started showing likes and responses of me meant for others to my followers, I got super conscious about every conversation. Also it always brought in nasty people into every conversation of some length
