  • 02:26 - Source: CNN CNN — Twitter rival Mastodon has grown eight times its size in a matter of weeks, going from approximately 300,000 users in October to 2.5 million in November, according to a blog post by the platform’s founder, Eugen Rochko.
  • The eye-popping growth figure comes as a wave of Twitter users have announced their plans to switch services amid the erratic leadership of Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk.
  • (Mastodon is a decentralized social network, meaning that there are also numerous third-party apps for the platform beyond its own.) Despite Mastodon’s rapid rise, Twitter remains far larger, reporting 238 million monetizable daily users in July.
  • In addition to affecting Mastodon, the new policy had also covered links to Facebook, Instagram and Truth Social, and said users may be suspended for displaying their handles for any of those platforms in their Twitter profiles.
