the sailor moon hotline has played at least 94,938 minutes of sailor moon since the 18th. that's over 65 days! it's the 23rd! fucked up!
(i say "at least" b/c (1) number get bigger (2) twilio's numbers lag a bit and are at least $50 off from expected right now)
(that $50 would add another 98ish hours)
anyway yeah that's the scale we're working with and part of why this is costing so much money. today was ~$280 which is ~550 hours today alone. most expensive day so far. wild
that's a big part of what's so wild to me about all this. twilio is not very expensive ($0.0085/minute doesn't even rate most of the time and hadn't once over the past 7ish years) but the scale we're in means i've been billed $860 over the past 5 days
and fortunately i've been able to cover all of that with some extremely generous donations but i also think about if i was pulling these numbers without the help of others and i start having trouble breathing
as i said a few days ago, going viral in a way where the more your post spreads the more money you get charged is its own unique nightmare
