I wish there was an easy way to filter out US politics on twitter :c, I don't follow many devs because of it.

Nice list! :3

Thanks! There is a relatively easy way, you can mute words so they don't show up on your feed.

I personally keep 'em open because US politics influence heavily on Brazil's. And when I inevitably get burned out I stay out of Twitter for a while.

I have over 100 muted words and I realized that muting doesn't always work. ;---;

Also, I feel ya with the Brazil thing, I follow a journalist that keeps me aware of what is going on in the US politically but only related to Venezuela because of obvious reasons, and normally I find out really quick about stuff related to Mexico. Everything else frustrates me really fast, so I also leave social media for a while. I think it's the best solution.

Yeah, when muting doesn't work the last resort is to quit Twitter for a while. That kind of break is good for the mental health
