Back in the day of Twitter's beginnings, you would see *everything* your friends posted directly in your timeline. That included replies to people you weren't following. Of course this doesn't scale, but it was an awesome way to find new, interesting people and also gave you a better idea on what your friends are interested in... I wish there was an option for that behaviour in #mastodon
@splitbrain Isn't that current behavior?
@adrianheine I don't think so. I believe your followers won't see that question in their timeline unless they are also following me.
@splitbrain Huh, I guess you're right and all contradicting cases I saw were explicit reposts.
meine vermutung ist das replies dort nur auftauchen wenn sie als "public" markiert sind. allerdings werden "unlisted" posts die keine replys sind dort anscheinend auch gezeigt, was das ganze wieder verwirrdender macht: https://chaos.social/@sofia/104624175483378071
