I usually prefer to read articles on their original websites – partly so that they don’t all blend together like Medium sludge, and partly because syndicated content has an uncomfortably high probability of losing formatting and even chunks of text.

    I mean, I don’t necessarily agree, but an interesting take on feed (or social) readers nonetheless.

    Quick sidenote: one could totally use Microsub channels to do this, too (and get rid of the unread items badge on a per-channel basis). I use a select Microsub channel and Nitter’s RSS feeds to keep track of very few Twitter accounts, and purposely keep them out of my unread items list.

    Fraidycat provides a way for you to prioritise content and shape your reading habits.
