Simulating groups? subscribing to hashtags
Let's pretend there are several hashtags that I care about -- maybe they are for news topics or sex workers on Switter, chat about certain programmers, whatever.
When I am logged in as an end user I can do this :
- goto //site/tag/whateverthehashtag
- click "load older statuses"
- pull up a list of posts tagged with "whateverthehashtag" through Pleroma magic
In the same way I can switch between "timeline", "public", and "known network", or switch between "mentions" and "private messages", having some easy access to my "favorite" hashtags in some way would be very useful .
In Mastodon-FE perhaps a "topics" item could be inserted between "direct messages" and "public timeline"
attaching some array of user-specified hashtags to a user somehow seems like it would be fairly simple to program ; going from a given hashtag to a feed for that hashtag is already a solved problem. (given tag x, change to url //site/tag/x) ....
