I’m not sure to whom you’re referring here, but I assure you, no one I count as a friend here would ever try to influence with whom I choose to interact, whether by spreading negativity about people or by turning their back on me based on who I follow.
And I really try to stay out of confrontations on the platform. The few I’ve engaged in just made me feel terrible.
☺ I am so sad that you were worried about that! If I had known, I would have set ya straight many moons ago.
