Hi A, thank you for mentioning it too. I am growing increasingly cautious as to the consistency of numbers; it does feel ‘generated’ following rather than organic. I will flag it to Medium Staff / Medium and hope they check the surge as it is continual and I don’t really take it as entirely real ‘following’ at this sort of rate. Do let me know if it increases in the way I describe. Increasing readershi is always great but generated numbers do not necessarily imply such a thing these days. I am any way very careful / circumspect of whom I follow back. Do keep me posted.
