Hi and hello to all the old followers who might now notice that the account has moved.
I have been preparing for this for about a week, tooting about it giving people time to manually follow me here (or un-follow me at m.s if that's how the cookie crumbles). About 500 people did follow me manually, thank you!
I have now *moved* the account, and that means *all* followers are now moved to this new account. Welcome!
Interestingly, about 25% of my m.s. followers did not show up following me here on m.t.
These are almost certainly accounts that were blocked or are at instances m.t does not federate with.
25% might seem like a lot, but consider:
- we're talking about moving a 4-year-old account across instances;
- when moving between walled-gardens one loses 100% of one's followers.
A smooth and easy account migration flow is super-important to a healthy fediverse. This makes me a happy rysiek!
