Well, hello, all you spambot followers. I toot sparingly, preferring my retinue of #bots (see pinned toots) to do the talking for me. I'd love for you to follow them too; after all, like follows like and each seeks the company of his own kind.
so uh, I have 1.2k followers now, mostly spambots with 0 toots and 0 followers, it seems. @jrenken any way to block/mass-delete followers from a single instance?
