    I know a lot of people say that you should not follow people without profile pic but I don't find that to be true on other social platforms. A lot of people who actively comment my posts don't have a profile pic. What are some other known ways to filter out bot accounts?

    Thanks!

    Don't follow people who have a ton of following?

    You can't avoid it completely, but you can minimize it. Like using "remove users with no avatar", "remove users with links on their tweets" etc. option, TMB has these features.
