Full regression results

This is a technical post for people interested in details. The punchline is: even if you include a wide variety of possible predictors of success, a simple least-squares model looking only at likes is quite similar in performance to more complicated models using followers, tags, etc.

I don't think the information here is a very wide interest, so I'm just going to present results and link to my GitHub for those who want details. Feel free to ask questions in the comments if you would like more info.
