2023 October update

The number of users and bandwidth of the snowflake-01 bridge remained steady, after last month's sudden decline caused by a disruption in domain fronting rendezvous.
The mix of countries of Snowflake users is the same as usual. You'll notice that the estimated range of users becomes less tight starting on 2023-10-04. The reason for this is that we upgraded Tor on the bridge on that day, and recent versions of Tor have a bug with counting pluggable transport users. We have partially compensated for the bug in this graph, but the estimates will be less precise than usual, until the bug is fixed. Not only Snowflake is affected: the same bug is responsible for the recent (illusory) correlated decline in pluggable transport users and increase in plain bridge users.
