@Jessiscah toots only federate to an instance if someone from that instance is following the person who made the toot. so people made follow bots to populate their small instances public timelines.

it's dumb and creepy.

@lycaon kinda afronted that they wont follow me personally

@lycaon making a whole bot that basically says "I don't want to follow you " is quite some commitment to throwing shade
