Accounts to follow to increase view of the Fediverse


#1

Hello, there are lots of people complaining about how hard is to make their instances federate with others. Most common workarounds are follow bots that are sometimes pretty annoying and ambassador bots that are boosting most popular toots from host instance. I prefer the second one, but there are not too many ambassadors… What about listing here not only ambassador bots, but also accounts that just often boosts things from instances to make it easier to connect with other instances?

The list:
@ambassador@photog.social
@Ambassador@vulpine.club

It looks like the ambassador is a manually managed account. Would it be possible to create a bot that will boost popular posts automatically? Maybe a multi-featured bot that has a web control panel for both Follow bot options (that can be disabled) and local ambassador bot boosts?

There maybe some problem with determining what is “popular”. This might change Mastodon into something different…
