Can a spam bot on Snapchat get access to your friends list?

I’m new to Reddit, so I apologize if this isn’t the right place to post this.

Today I was added by a stranger on Snapchat. It said that they added me by search. It had a female presenting Bitmoji and what appeared to be a regular Snapchat profile. I thought maybe it might be a friend of a friend bc when my friends post me on their snap stories, sometimes their friends will add me. So I added them back and sent them a message asking how they knew me.

The message was unopened for hours until around 3:30 am when I woke up to the sound of my phone blowing up and the account had sent me about 8 consecutive explicit videos of a random half nude woman all followed by a link to an onlyfans page. I didn’t open any of the links, and I immediately blocked the account.

I found it odd bc I don’t have my Snapchat posted on any of my other social media. I’ve gotten weird porn scams on snap before but it was usually from a random account that didn’t add me, but somehow would message me with a typed message and send me a sketchy link to some porn site. I’ve never clicked on any of these things. But I’ve never been added by a stranger and been sent unsolicited explicit videos followed by a link.

My question is will whatever this account was now have access to my friends list and send them things like this? I tried googling it, but I’ve had no luck.
