I think the problem stems from the fact that there’s not really a “home base” for any of this stuff. For my twittering without media I use tweetdeck, but I have a dozen columns up I can’t keep track of. My interests and the brand content of Flagon sync up almost 100% so it’s difficult to decide what to put where. Like, it’s been so long that the audience has either gone or changed so I have no idea who I’m addressing from Flagon.
Really, streamlining is the heart of the problem as is jumping through seemingly arbitrary UI hoops. I have a difficult enough time focusing as it is that it feels like spinning plates at opposite sides of the room.
With mastodon the technology allows for a granular vetting of bad people, and the owner of the instance (anyone can own an instance) has control on what connects through. You don’t have to encounter nazis ever. But it’s also not friendly toward having branded accounts, bots, or personal accounts, so over there it’s just one login…mine…and I share my stuff. That’s kind of nice.
So, maybe what it boils down to is that there’s just too many places to manage for this stuff.
