Looks like things did go wrong, if you had your account locked and was following this account you would receive multiple follow requests.
That is now fixed hopefully, also a reminder: If you don't want the bot to follow you unfollow the bot.
Sorry for any annoyance.
@zac Not sure if this is still/again a thing (the post says it may not be, but it's also 1.5 years old), but this bot has re-followed me twice in the last few months. My account is locked, and I never un-followed it. Is this intentional?
@mezzodrinker Not intentional no
@zac Good to know. Thanks for the quick feedback!
@mezzodrinker I've had to restart the bot a couple of times last couple of months so I'm wondering if it does this behaviour when that happens.
@zac I'm afraid I can't see the time when the follow request was triggered, but if you want, you can restart the bot and I can tell you if it tried to re-follow me.
@mezzodrinker I'm not going to fix or debug this unless it's really annoying or affecting a lot of people unfortunately, thanks for letting me know though
@zac Gotcha. Just thought you may want to know
Keep up the good work!
@zac Ah, just in case this is still relevant for you, I received an email notification for the follow request on 2020-08-29 at 20:04:20 UTC. Would that coincide with a restart?
