lamenting Google Plus's Collections (again)
@a that is more like Google Plus's #Collections, which was introduced later (and imho too late) in its lifetime.
It's probably the feature I miss the most from #GooglePlus, and I've previously gone into more details about why I miss Google Plus's Collections
Being able to filter a profile based on a list of predefined hashtags on the author's profile was a step in the right direction, but it's still a far cry from what #GPlus Collections was.
There's still plenty of times I wish I could only follow someone's tech posts, while opting out of their shit posts.
(And no, filters are not a solution, because those don't work on a per-account basis, and rely too much on keywords.)
