  1. Well then, if you want to use RSS to follow your friends, there are things out there that will let you turn Twitter and Facebook timelines into RSS feeds. Add to that people’s personal blogs/sites, and yeah you can get yourself a pretty decent non-echo-chamber experience. Because that’s the other problem with social media algorithums. They promote echo chambers. Sometimes those are good, like when you want to get away, but more often than not they’re bad.

  2. Run an ad blocker. On Twitter, punish advertisers by blocking any accounts you see promoted tweets from that you don’t follow, and for accounts you do follow, mark any promoted tweets you see with I don’t like this ad. No need to pay for ad free timelines, as long as the advertisers aren’t making money off me, I don’t care how much they’re wasting paying the platforms.
