The federated timeline seems like a good idea in theory, but if (as seems reasonable) you tend to follow any accounts that regularly touch on topics of interest to you, then it steadily turns into a firehose of stuff that doesn't.

At the extremes, it's not even boring so much as it is incomprehensible. Even when it's not overwhelmingly fast, it tends to come across as nonsensical.

@lrhodes I find social media busy and pushy in general, I don't find the Federated Timeline so useful but I like seeing all the different types of people who hang out on Mastodon. If the people I think of as my internet people have moved to places I don't feel comfortable, maybe I can find different kinds of people on a space that feels right?
