An automated follow bot.

Asking for a friend.

What are the repercussions for creating an automated bot that would follow people who currently follow you?

Nothing on the or regarding this.

You'd end up giving control of who you follow, and therefore your feed, to other people.

You'd end up seeing a lot of crap content and spam.

Too much noise so little signal.

If the ToS and code of conduct say nothing about it, it’s probably fine.
