Quick reminder:

If you do go to a new instance, make sure to go to your account settings to migrate your followers from the old account to the new one

It's a pretty straightforward process:

1. On your new account, select the option of "Moving from a different account" and add your old account there to create an alias

2. On your old account, select "Move to a different account". Put in your new account as well as your password. Once you confirm, all your old followers will automatically be added!

@AndyDershon Also a reminder that this process can take a while -- especially with all the people migrating atm.

Don't get discouraged if your follow/follower count doesn't get up to what it was right away. Give it a few hours. It'll rise a little at a time as it completes each transfer.
