@ckeen yeah, it's a similar concept. Except here it would be a subset of a single account you'd follow, so the general semantics is more or less the same as what is presented in client's UI already.
Guppe groups - while a usable hack - are far below in usability compared to what an integrated group feature would/could look like in supporting servers and clients.
(I have a lot of opinions when it comes to federated groups, and this approach is NOT one I like)
