  • Twitter itself has seen a jolt of users deactivating accounts at a dramatic and new rate.
  • Mastodon moved up to 7.8+ million accounts created (growing 2.2 million new users since the Musk takeover) and up to today’s 2.6 million monthly active monthly users (growing by more than 2 million new users in the last weeks). They are now steadily growing by
