Some of the new folks I've followed are... interesting.
Like full on conspiracy theory nuts.
But I'd much rather follow them rather be stuck in my own ideological echo chamber.
If anything it makes me question, modify and sometimes even strengthen my own beliefs.

@Obscurequokka kindly remind yourself that government created the term "conspiracy theorist" to dismiss those questioning the government's regarding the assassination of in the 60's. Imagine if those People had all the technology we have today and we would actually know the real of what happened :)

@Obscurequokka I tried doing that myself — following those I don't exactly agree with — but it gets really exhausting over time to keep yourself from jumping into (mostly pointless) discussions. So I usually, eventually unsubscribe :-)

@Obscurequokka thankfully, here the platform itself doesn't go out of its way to present enraging/engaging views in your face :-) That was the reason I quit Twitter. Here, you just unfollow.
