Well, i did find some folks to follow using twtxt via the web-y twtxt.net, which is like an updated version of twtxt, but still built on the underlaying file format. Gods help me, i'm now thinking about writing a client for this. I'm about 99.99% sure this will not happen. More likely to look at the txtnish client, as there might be an easier way there for me to hack on it, rather than writing a whole new thing.
Totally going to start celebrating Imbolc! ☀️
Apropos of nothing, i really want some 🍩's. Like, a lot.
