@manton This brings up a query for me: how can those of us who couldn't care less about checkins mute them from our timelines? I've unfollowed a few people because they're always checking in to somewhere or other.

@Miraz @manton Add me to Miraz’s query.

@odd @Miraz @manton Same here. Check-in with some context and info is fine but not otherwise

@Miraz Muting is probably best for now. I think some of the check-ins you're seeing are probably from external blogs and Micro.blog doesn't really know they're check-ins. This is also why I decided to keep my check-ins on a separate blog, to avoid potential clutter.

@pratik @odd @Miraz @manton Same! I guess it is MUTE then.

@manton Hmmm, I see. Thanks.

@rom Can you selectively mute certain types of posts? I thought it’s all or nothing @odd @miraz @manton

@pratik maybe @gluon can help here? I think you can mute certain keywords there. @rom @Miraz @manton @odd

@pratik Gluon?

@hutaffe Yes, however good @gluon is, I sadly can’t use it as my default Micro.Blog client, because it won’t let me select text from a post directly, and then choose “Look up”, “Copy” or “Translate” from a context menu. Those are essential to me. Else I would probably switch right away. @pratik @rom @miraz @manton

@rom IOS and Android client for Micro.Blog.

@hutaffe @pratik @Miraz @odd @rom Muting keywords in the main platform is certainly overdue. Hopefully it's something we can make time for.

@manton That would be great. I’m sure some people who follow me don’t want to hear about the orange buffoon.

@manton A few years ago I’d written a script to import Foursquare data into Day One for just such a purpose. A Micro.blog checkin service would be nice. Would love if there was a “private” checkin option in that.
