@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org The way I originally “envisioned” this was basically a convenience around the whole User-Agent way of advertising your interest in following someone’s feed. Of course you don’t have to, it’s actually optional. But I didn’t really want to build a full-blown “notifications” system at the time, I just did the lazy thing of just publishing a FOLLOW foo from bar using xyz posted from a @twtxt@twtxt.net bot at the pod level. Think of it as tailing the access.log looking for matching User-Agent(s) – Because that’s what it does 🤣
