APOD 500,000

It was only a year ago that I mentioned that @apod had 250,000 followers on Twitter. Since then it has doubled to 500,000. This growth could be some kind of network effect caused by more re-tweets making more people aware of the account. It could be that Twitter still has @apod as an auto-follow for new account signups. Perhaps there are just more spam accounts randomly following people. Whatever the cause, I've put in no effort other than to try to keep the daily updates going despite Twitter's increasingly locked-down API.

Don't provide an email/URL unless really necessary as your comment may get caught in the spam filter. No URLs get turned into links so don't bother. The ground rules for commenting are:
  1. No profanity or personal attacks please. Keep it clean.
  2. Restrict comments to subjects relevant to the post.
  3. Don't mention Pluto. If you do it'll be replaced by Goofy.
  4. No spam i.e. anything commercial unrelated to astronomy.
  5. If you think you've discovered a Theory of Everything, a replacement to Relativity, or something similar then please publish it in a journal rather than in my comments.
Comments against the spirit of these ground rules may be removed.
