In keeping with Micro.blog’s lack of counts for things like followers and likes, I’ve decided to do the same on Twitter.
I have created a few CSS rules to run on the Twitter website using Stylish. These rules remove any counts from the actions section of a tweet.
The idea is that any action by myself to like, retweet or reply, isn’t swayed by the same actions of others. Just because a tweet is being liked by everyone else, it shouldn’t influence my decision to like it.
I’d like to see more of this on Twitter. Less about the numbers and more about content and discoverability.
