12.9K new users on mastodon.social this week. Don’t know off-hand how the numbers for the fediverse at large look

It’s now up to 18.8K new users this week. For reference, growth was about 1K per week for a long time.

Hope to see more Mastodon servers pop up to share the load!

If you want your server to be advertised on joinmastodon.org, check out joinmastodon.org/covenant for conditions and instructions (but please mind I won’t be able to process submissions until at least tomorrow when I get home)


@Gargron I was thinking of moving to my Metalhead.club account, it that helps.

@LibertyBeta @Gargron compared to Mastodon social, yes it is, and mostly in Dutch. You'll need to follow a couple hundred quality accounts to get fast moving and interesting home timeline. But you get so many metalhead friends instantly. That said, the federated timeline is pretty flooded

@akash @Gargron I'll be honest, the Dutch language barrier does hold me back slightly v

@LibertyBeta oh bump, yea I too wish there was more English content hopefully in future. What languages do you speak though?

@akash English, and I can be yelled at in French and Spanish (wife speaks and teaches both).

@LibertyBeta I assume that's in England? I've been misled by such names before lol.

@LibertyBeta Yep misleading. But sweet, it must be pretty cold in there right now?
