0rbit released the illegally copied data over the course of a month. Why did nobody notice it?

The followers of the account were all from one cluster and most of them weren't active in months.

_0rbit had around 18,5k followers when Twitter suspended the account (). Thanks to socialblade we know that it had 16 580 followers on the day before the @unge hack. Based on that I was able to reconstruct the followers. /2 screenshot socialblade
We don't know when the followers followed the account, but we know when their accounts were created. Until 2017 it could be organic (popularity of Twitter in Germany). But in April 2017 there is an unnatural increase.

The follower numbers show same pattern. /3 graph when accounts were createdgraph how many followers the account had in the past each month

Ein deutscher Hacker hat persönliche Daten von Spitzenpolitikern, Künstlern und Medienschaffenden geleakt. Aber dieser Leak hat weirde Aspekte: (Thread) #BTLeaks
Ein Twitter-Account mit 18.000 Followern, der seit Juni 2017 aktiv persönliche Daten von bekannten Persönlichkeiten veröffentlicht - wie so lange unbemerkt?
Bei dieser hohen Anzahl an Followern wurden die Tweets von "Orbit" jeweils nur sehr wenig geliket und geretweetet.

Germany faces the biggest hacker attack in its history.
Private data of almost 1000 German #Bundestag, #Regional Parliament & #EU delegates was leaked.
I worked through the leaked data all night. It's shocking!
Not affected so far: #AfD.…
The scale of the attack is unprecedented
Mobile phone numbers, addresses, private family conversations, vacation pictures, bills, communications between politicians, work emails etc. were leaked
In most cases, Outlook was hacked, in some cases also Facebook, Twitter etc.
The leaked data, which was illegally collected until October 2018 and released December 2018, but just found now, is still publicly available.
I searched through it 5 hours last night, read maybe 3%of it and already found cases of corruption and bad political scandals.
