its fun that on twitter there are
retweets : a feature that boosts a certain post onto the followers' timelines
likes : a feature that is supposed to represent liking a post, except it also works like retweets but has a chance of not retweeting

you can go into someone's profile and disable retweets, so surely you would only see their posts and nothing they retweet?

of course not
you will still see everything they liked, which is basically unreliable retweets that you can't hide

@AgathaSorceress you can disable boosts in your home TL from someone you follow btw!
