A well known investor on twitter actually did the 'follow, wait for follow back, then after some time unfollow' thing on me recently. When people do this, as a rule I unfollow them again when I notice, but for this person I actually didn't because they genuinely tweet interesting and useful things that I appreciate having in my feed!
In Firefox for example you can right click a site in history and click "Forget this site" which will reset all of the caches that keeps it working
Check the bottom of the list for the social ones.

If you picture a camp with fences and prison guards, yeah that’s wrong.
If you think I’m defending gulags, note that all of what I’ve said are objective and can be factually proven/disproved. If you feel that way, you probably should investigate your own bias (i.e does my feeling preclude me from believing in facts?)
> gulag prisoner behave more like city dwellers
I don't even know what to make of this
> A number of cities started as gulags/incorporated gulags still exist in Siberia/Arctic
The ones exploring natural resources would be my guess, first with forced labor, then as a normal economy after this.
> If you think I’m defending gulags
It does sound like it, you even put a disclaimer
Maybe Twitter is running a webworker?
Is it unfollowing these people, is it muting them, etc?
Clicking "continue with twitter" asks for a lot of stuff including "Mute, block, and report accounts for you.", "Follow and unfollow accounts for you.", and "Post and delete Tweets for you".
Once you log in, you can see a bunch of accounts and either mute/unmute one-by-one or in bulk.
Twitter doesn’t give very many options for developers (read, read/write, read/write/dms). So unfortunately in order to POST to /mutes, the app gets access to more than it needs.
Wait, what kind of use-case is there for this?
The Twitter list you use is configurable.
My one thought is you could probably move the usernames over to a file you could version control with the idea of accepting PRs.
Great idea - thought about doing it, but was out of scope for a holiday hack because of Twitter’s rate limiting.
was a gimmicky hack i threw together over the holiday so i could turn on/off vc twitter easily.
Edit nvm found it at the footer:
blocking is more extreme - neither user can view each other's content (says you are blocked by @username).
Ryan Hoover is generally pretty innocuous and is also the founder of ProductHunt, something builders might want to hear about. And ShrugCap pretty much just makes fun of SV VC.
After that, a Promoted Tweet muter would find wide appreciation (using uBO for that now).
If I didn't want to hear from someone, wouldn't I not follow them in the first place?
What is the use case here?
Plus I think there are socially left-leaning people in tech who want nothing to do with anything distinctly related to capitalism, and so ousting investors from their circles is seen as "good praxis" or whatever they call it.
overall, this was a little hack that everyone i talked to thought was funny.
(I wonder if it should reflect on the retweeter, positively or negatively).
