The platform is drowning in reposts. They’ve become a kind of spam and we don’t have the tools to manage this.

There are people I follow where I genuinely want to hear their original uploads but I do not want to have to wade through millions of their spammy reposts.

Something that would help a lot would be to give us the ability to block reposts on a user basis:

 

 

It’s not like this issue hasn’t come up before:
