FediFollows has been on the #Fediverse for one year! 🎉 🎂
A huge thank you to everyone who suggested accounts so far, and to the accounts themselves 👏

FediFollows currently has 2.3K followers across a wide range of instances, so even people who don't follow me are more likely to see these interesting accounts in their hashtag searches.

I started the @fedeproxy project this year to federate projects out of GitHub.
