This One Trick Will Revolutionize Your Use of Social Media: Block fuckwits.
On social media, the advantage is that a large userbase and participation. The disadvantage: it's 99.9999% crap.
What's working for me is to filter ruthlessly. If someone is disruptive, ideological, insane, or crazy-making, I'll block them without thought (I used to agonize over that, I don't any more).
High signal is rare, but odds of missing out by blocking idiots are low.
