Another batch of new followers got their introduction toots boosted by yours truly.
This time roughly a fifth had proper introduction toots, and perhaps a third in all had something boostable on their profile.
This is an improvement! 🙂
I'll be boosting introduction toots as long as the toot that started this thread stays pinned. Please consider making it easy by *pinning* your introduction toot and tagging it with #introduction.
And most importantly, welcome and have fun!
