Q: How big is Mastodon?

A: There are several updating counters. See instances.mastodon.xyz for a total current instance and user count, relative to mastodon.xyz.

Several instances run /local/ usercount bots which show historic growth (over the reporting period). A fairly comprehensive one appears to be social.lou.lt/@mastodonusercou

As of 9 Apr 2016: There are currently 371 instances being tracked, with a total of 130547 users.

That would be doubling Mastodon users roughly once a week.

@dredmorbius Impressive for an upstart social network. Will see how long it lasts
