Accounts representing companies have started to be created. Some were created a few weeks ago (maybe others even longer) like @Raspberry_Pi

Two new ones mentioned in

are @cariad_tech and @VWGroup

It is time to start thinking about instance moderation and what moderation looks like for group accounts and corporate-owned accounts. I doubt the answers will be the same in all parts of the Fediverse. 🍿

Consider that it is generally well-accepted that a well-run instance should mark bot accounts as such. Should accounts representing a group of people rather than a single individual be marked in some analogous way? What sort of relationships and funding mechanisms should be allowed/disclosed between large corporations, influencers and instances?
