I'm curious as to why you did this. What are you hoping to achieve by getting a lot of followers?

First and foremost, the last 1.5 months really helped me overcome some of my social anxiety.

Long term, I want to be very successful in business and a key component is having a large reach (followers). I could wait till when I need it to start the process, or I could get it over with now.

I also really believe that I have a unique and important view point to share with the world. More than that, if I can help others avoid making mistakes I had to, that would be really great. I really strongly believe that nobody has to lose for you to win. So if others can use my story to “win”, that would be wonderful.
