Mastodon remote follow

I’ve updated today to help Mastodon users follow people on It used to be that if you clicked from Mastodon to a user, you just ended up their blog home page. Now it redirects to a special version of the profile screen which includes a follow form.

This is very similar to Mastodon’s default remote follow form, or Aaron Parecki’s profile page. For more about how to use your own blog’s domain name as your Mastodon-compatible username, see this help page about ActivityPub.
