If you follow yourself on Kinja, it shows up as you having a new follower and you following someone new. So basically, if you follow yourself, you then follow yourself. The action of you following yourself gives you a new follower, but since you’re then doing it to yourself, it shows you as following someone, as there’s only one account involved.
I may have a tad bit too much time on my hands. Now I see why parent’s hate winter break.
TL;DR if you follow yourself, you create an awesome paradox, but everyone thinks you’re an arrogant asshole because you’re following yourself.
EDIT: This was intended to be obnoxious/sarcastic. Some people took it a little seriously.
