When I wanted to buff up the list of people I follow on twitter, I went to
KDE Community's Twitter page, and looked at which accounts KDE follows, and
who follows KDE. I did the same thing when I set up Mastodon again. I think
this is much more useful than any list, which will always be out-of-date.
That said, a list would be shorter.
