Great Post TimG,
I’m new to Medium, but this has to be one of the best articles I’ve read.
And no, I don’t think there’s something wrong with using bots, otherwise Instagram would have probably banned it already, but they didn’t. (And I’m sure they know that they have fake users /bots etc).
I’ll probably give it a test and let you know my feedback.
I do have one question, you used this test on your personal account. What about using it in a company profile? Do you think it will bring similar results?
