Don’t forget that the community subscriber numbers only show the subscribers from your instance. So iphone might be much, much bigger than the number you’re seeing. World has the most subscribers, but at least one of the admins is sketch, so I don’t really do anything there. But they definitely have the most users, so check their numbers. Also, no one really cares if you use alts here. In the past, I’ve used 3 different instances because one or more was going down.
