Two great things about RSS readers:

1) Disconnects you from The Algorithm.

2) No comment thread arblegarble.

What you see isn't moderated by advertiser revenue, platform bias, or user outrage.

Seriously, get yourself one.

@readsteven too many sites don’t support rss though. Or do but do it poorly (looking at you anandtech and wikichip) :(

@readsteven the nasa photo of the day feed just does not work for me because it never shows the photo but I think that’s a Reeeder bug

@cinebox True, but many readers do a lot more than RSS feeds. Quite a few have become good content scrapers.

I scrape a number of local and state Twitter feeds because that's the most reliable place they post timely info. *heavy sigh*

The APOD Twitter account is scrapable, and has a number of mirrors in the Fediverse.

@readsteven ah nice. I’ve just been using the nasa app which has an apod widget

@readsteven

In the age of PayWallI have RSS. But big tech doesn't like the lack of control

@readsteven shameless self plug but a while back I wrote about how to set up a self-hosted RSS aggregator! stevegattuso.me/2020/11/30/sel

@readsteven I’ve been using NetNewsWire, really enjoying it so far.
