Idea: enabling "quote tweets" in Hometown but only for accounts that are self-identified as bots (aka the Service actor in activitypub). That way you're by definition not using the feature to dogpile on a person. There are so many times I want to surface some cool bot content but with a little commentary or context.
Note that this is just an idea, not a plan for Hometown. Curious to think what others think of it.
@darius wouldn't this require coordination across pinafore, tusky, etc? or could it be done fully server-side?
The second rule of smores town is: HAVE A NICE DAY.
