I recently picked up about 30 new followers out of nowhere. At first I was super excited thinking "Whoa, I can't believe how fast I've picked up an audience!" But my posts still only get a few reactions on average, so I checked out a couple of the followers and almost all of them have no posts or commments and nothing filled out on their profile. Most of them are new, but multiple days old, and at least one is from over a month ago... nothing ever written but just recently followed me.
So I got to wondering, are some of these bots? I remember back when I watched Smarter Every Day seeing a couple of videos from him (and other Youtubers) talking about Facebook having a bot infestation. Does dev.to have a situation like that?
