@firstname.lastname@example.org My question goes more in if someone replies to me, and I don’t follow them, how can I know they is trying to do it?
I guess they need to contact me somehow to request a follow, right?
@eaplmx you can’t know unless you follow them allready.
But I have been brewing on an idea to let you inform someone when you start to follow them, if they are open for such notifications. It could either be via webmetions or simply an option in the UI to email them if they have given disclose that in their twtxt.txt. There is also an option in the original spec to see who follows you in your webservers logfiles
Yep you can’t, in yarn.social as it’s more centralized you can see it in Discover, but in local you only see what you follow. What can be done as well to extend it, will be to create a Discover like by downloading all the users followed by the one that you follow an so on. Here you can create a big map of who follows who, and have all their tweet as well.
Thanks for that new idea you gave me @email@example.com.
