Twitter purge: Don't be surprised if you lose followers

Herman Weaver | 13 July, 2018, 17:37

According to data analytics website Twitter Audit, Modi, Kejriwal and Gandhi together have a combined Twitter credibility of just 35% - only 35 out of every 100 followers on an average are "real people".

Although losing 2 million followers is undoubtedly a significant drop, proportionally speaking it's not necessarily huge.

He remains the third-most-followed person on the site, behind singers Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, according to the Daily Beast.

Since the above tweet was published on Thursday evening, Lewis's follower count has dropped further to 363,000.

If your account has been locked during Twitter's purge, it will remain in the same state unless the owner validates the account and resets the password.

While eliminating locked accounts from follower totals will not affect MAU or DAU totals, Twitter's efforts to shut down other kinds of accounts - including those set up by spammers - potentially could, Gadde acknowledged.

McHenry saw a similar drop this week, going from around 362,800 followers to 223,300 Thursday evening.

"Removing locked accounts from followers doesn't impact MAU or DAU", Twitter said in a blog post. By Thursday evening, the @POTUS handle had actually gained a number of followers, even though the numbers are still continuing to fluctuate a little here and there.

Social media giant Twitter is on a major clean-up drive, deleting millions of fake accounts to combat social media fraud and "build trust in the website", in a move that could possibly become a headache for Indian politicians and celebrities.

Twitter announced the purge was coming and told users that most would typically see a loss of usually fewer than four followers. He also added that the new protections policy has helped Twitter to prevent more than 50,000 fake signups per day.

Her tweet comes after many prominent Twitter users across the world lost more than a million followers as federal and state agencies in the U.S. started investigating shadowy agencies that sell fake followers.
