Mastodon's monthly active user numbers have risen by 84,579 since the Twitter buyout story broke on Monday (and I do mean across the Mastodon network, not this server)
Mastodon has gained 106,723 monthly active users since the end of March (when Elon bought 9.2% of Twitter's shares). 93,603 are new accounts. Overall that's a 42% increase in Mastodon's MAU.
@Gargron what's activity like, though? I'm concerned that a lot of those accounts are panic-parks, rather than people who end up actually staying and engaging. It still feels like a bit of a desert out here sometimes.
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
