Thanks for the analysis in your original post @RondeauPro. Interesting and simple because you have only the two networks. You mentioned being at LINC so I wondered if your twitter followers or engagement may have increased due to that as well during that same time period. i.e., you met new people who are interested in the same things you are, they looked you up and followed, RTd you, etc. I have 8 scored networks. My score is in the upper 70s range and has been slowly slipping lately simultaneous with the increase in % contribution of Lithium Community to the score, which is currently around 5%. But my situation is much more complex because I have 8 scored networks, rather than 2. This confounds any analysis. (I'm not complaining about my score or account, just relating to yours and offering some thanks for your post. I can't do the analysis you did and I haven't found other "new" users who've thought to do what you've done. Smart! Thanks!)
