We currently have instances in 49 countries and in 348 autonomous systems.
More thant 50% of the instances use one of the top 12 autonomous systems.
Over 90% of the instances are in one of the top 4 countries.
The source are all instances that have a working IPv6 or IPv4 adress (first working in this order) and are connected to mastdon.social (nearly 3500).
I plan to release the raw data and the scripts tomorrow in a follow up to this toot.
