Is there an easier way to follow back followers?

Every time someone follows me, I feel the need to follow back but since I have hit over 2k followers it has become a very tedious effort to follow back.

Without me creating a web scraping script that would log in to dev.to, extract my followers and iteratively open their profile in order to hit the follow button.

Is there an easier way? or should I go ahead with the Python script?

Thanks.

There is no way to do it and as far as I know there are no platforms out there that allow mass follows so you might need to script your way to this :)

I think there is no way to do it, without creating a script. otherwise, you try puppeteer.
