# Script to migrate a Mastodon-exported following list to micro.blog
# Generate an API key here: https://micro.blog/account/apps
mbapikey=D43950049A7ECDED91E8
# Then go to your Mastodon instances data export, e.g. https://mastodon.social/settings/export
# where you can download your following list in CSV format
# Or use Fedifinder to generate a CSV of people you follow on Twitter with Mastodon/ActivityPub accounts:
# https://fedifinder.glitch.me/
# Then simply pipe that list to this script, for example:
# ~/Documents/mastomigrate.sh < ~/Downloads/following_accounts.csv
