Did a bunch of new folks join the fediverse recently, or did they all just suddenly find and start following me, in particular, at approximately the same moment? The former seems more likely, but I don't see any recent posts on Metafilter that would have led to it.

@ink_slinger Matt Haughey joined and I think people followed.

@ink_slinger @jemaleddin He wasn't doing anything with it until just recently, I think. He had a "I'm leaving Twitter" thing on Medium, I think?

@RexfordGTugwell @ink_slinger yeah, that’s the important details and context I neglected to add!
