Jorijn Schrijvershof describing the growth of his Mastodon instance1 in November 2022:

I love everything technical and jumped at the opportunity to start my instance. The days since were a wild ride. If memory serves me well, the first days went like this:

  • November 4th: 60 users
  • November 5th: 600 users
  • November 6th: 6000 users
  • November 7th: 15,000 users

But things have since cooled.

I’m still trying to understand Mastodon :).

  1. This is the instance of Mastodon I am on. ↩︎
