I totally agree! I only use Twitter in the "latest tweets first" mode! It reduces at least some of the noise.
And I also don't want to villify social media networks in general. I think their initial ideas are so great and create so many good things!

The user would be required to take the extra step of navigating to a "discover" tab to have the algorithm try to keep their attention.

Unfortunately, this doens't work for me. I still get caught by the algorithm on instagram's discover tab to an extend that it's hard to close the app :D

I'm personally okay with this, as this now becomes a conscious choice by you.

I shouldn't be bombarded with suggested content immediately to the point where my actual network is pushed into oblivion by the latest teen craze or conspiracy theory.

The problem then moves away from being an issue with the social networks, and becomes one about us, which we deal with through education.
