It’s been a while since we put in the mitigations for rebytes. To refresh your memory, the mitigation basically affected how quickly your rebyte would go out to your followers. At the time, it was due to excessive spamming for clout, rebyte 4 rebyte, and trying to trend on the Pop Now page.
We’re in a pretty different place nowadays so we’re going to look at rebytes again in the near future and start by reducing the mitigation a bit. This means that rebytes will go out more quickly and behave more like you’d expect.
The other thing we’ll be looking into is bringing the rebyte button to the top level of the post object so you can do it it one tap.
Finally, we’ll probably need some optional filtering in place to make sure this is a good experience for people who wanna control what kind of rebytes they see a bit more, so we’ll look at that too.
