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.
We have now collectively gained 112,413 monthly active users in the last few days, and 149,720 compared to the end of March. That's a 62% increase. Total now at 384K MAU across Mastodon.
Got today's numbers! A 28,239 MAU increase in a single day. Now at 141K since Monday, and 176K since March. We've crossed over the 413K MAU mark on the Mastodon part of the fediverse!
@Gargron@mastodon.social from which instances is the data?
@waterdev @Gargron It should be from all instances if I understand correctly.
@firstname.lastname@example.org @Gargron@mastodon.social how would he get the data from all instances? There is no main server they talk back home
@waterdev @Gargron Here he were writing about Mastodon network so I pressume he still does.
@tomasveneny @waterdev Correct. Data is not collected through mastodon.social at all.
@Gargron@mastodon.social @email@example.com how's it collected then?
@waterdev @tomasveneny Public APIs and crawling.
@Gargron@mastodon.social @firstname.lastname@example.org ah ^^ did only mastdon get crawled or the whole fediverse?
@waterdev @Gargron @tomasveneny he said "the Mastodon part", and I assume APIs are different enough for others that it'd be harder to do all.
