Follow In my experience it mostly seemed to work, including blocks and mutes, though there seem to have been some follows / followers and such that didn't carry.

One thing that doesn't seem to track is other accounts which have blocked you, so that profiles I knew I'd been blocked by hadn't blocked my new profile. (Several of these eventually did, though I may be unware of others.)

I'd say it's 95%+ successful, but keep an eye out for issues. Export/import is a good Plan B strategy.

Note that large numbers of actions may be rate-limited, either taking time to complete or not completing.

It may also be that locked accounts won't automatically re-follow a new profile. I'm not sure of this though I have suspicions.
