Ahhh interesting. Much of the initial traffic was not listed as referral in Analytics and I could not find the links when I searched Twitter myself.
Probably weren't listed as referral because of how short the URL is? I mean I myself came from itmedia.co.jp/news/spv/1711/15/new... but I'm sure people on Twitter woulda just typed out "dev.to" because it's like what, 6 presses on the screen/keyboard.
