These articles about #Mastodon are slowly catching up to the fact that they are actually articles about the #fediverse!
It's 2 millions accounts, not 2 millions users.
Same for every other service. "Users" sounds better.
Others services give "active users" figures, with a definition of what is an "active users".
Less than 10% of mastodon accounts are really active.
Actually no single admin can provide a figure about user activity on a decentralised net service.
We have stats of active users on big instance and we can extrapolate.https://mastodon.social/api/v1/instance/activity
Meh. Also, bots everywhere.
@hawaiiThe real sign that the fediverse is becoming a force to be reckoned with: spammers are starting to hit it hard.@Gargron @mastodonusercount
@hawaii hmm, according to https://fediverse.network, which actually counts this stuff, mastodon instances only have 1985885 user IDs. Did 15000 people go offline?
@hawaii @Gargron @mastodonusercount *people (let's stop referring to people as users) no disrespect meant.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
