I'm thinking about launching an instance, but would like to get some decent federation going before I open it up to subscribers. Is there a socially acceptable method for this?
Or should I just invite a few people, and ask them to import their follow list first?
@phessler @mulander I used a follow-bot for the first week or so, but it resulted in a lot of follows on japanese-mastodon for some reason. (Which made my federated timeline mostly in japanese, which didn't really help with content in the end since my users couldn't read it).
So be careful when selecting followers :)
