POSSE following/friending someone new #550
Minority edge-case as I don't think anyone else is doing follow posts yet, but whenever I follow/subscribe to someone (either website or silo profile) I post a h-entry with u-follow-of. I then go manually hit the follow button on the appropriate silo, but it'd be cool if bridgy publish could take care of that for me (specifically for twitter).
I'll look into implementing this myself when I have time, just thought I'd note it here in case anyone else is interested.
I have just run into this too, after having verified that the old hack for following via the Twitter posting API of just posting "f username" or "follow username" no longer works (i.e. using the "1.1/statuses/update" endpoint) - that is, that API now literally tweets that text instead of treating it like a follow command.
