@mh8 Yes! I just had to first point to my old account on the new one and set up and alias on the old one pointing to the new one (if any of that makes sense lol). Once that was done, it migrated all of my followers over to the new account. It really impressed me.
The only other thing I did was import my follows and stuff over to the new account, though I don't know if the migration handled that as well.
