There are more people using Mastodon today than any IRC network. Just think about /that/ one.

I have the facts to back it up

irc.netsplit.de/

Look for yourself. Trust me, there's no "big networks" in hiding besides Freenode. And that's 80k users. Mastodon has about 130k as of this writing.

@Elizafox that #fact is amazing! It's incredible it's surpassed the total number of #IRC users in a very short time.

@Elizafox Do you mind if I post this to Twitter? Trying to convince people to leave the site, and this is great motivation. πŸ™‚

@Elizafox To have created an account on a Mastodon instance doesn't mean "using Mastodon": could be five minutes to see how the software works, say hello and leave. We need metrics to define an active user like a threshold of posts for example.

@Elizafox there are still people on IRC nets? :grin:

@Elizafox There are more people using Mastodon today than any single IRC network. I don't think this is relevant, as IRC client links the user to several instances, while the mastodon server has to do it. I won't switch the internal IRC of my company into a mastodon instance, it has an other purpose and is meant to be isolated from internet. (An internal mastodon instance could be useful (or just fun ?) too, anyway)

@Elizafox

Stats? I don't think that's true if compared to all IRC instances. Not just major servers like rizon and freenode.
