Once you post the content, the tagged account/accounts get a notification about your post, and you will see that more often than not, they will interact with it.

Make sure you do not continuously tag accounts in all the posts, it can rub them the wrong way and sometimes, the accounts may even block you. Use this feature responsibly.
