There’s a Twitter Purger going on at the moment as the social network site begins the process of deleting over 70 million (fake, dormant, Inactive, spam, bots) accounts as announced by its CEO, Jack Dorsey.
Twitter it also specified that it would be removing locked accounts from follower accounts across profiles globally, which would lead to a drop in follower counts.
Jack himself who has already lost 200,000 followers to the purge earlier announced that ‘this week we’ll be removing locked Twitter accounts (locked when we detect suspicious changes in behaviour) from follower counts across profiles globally. The number of followers displayed on many profiles may go down’
Twitter stated that users are going to notice a reduction in followers, about 4, but those with lots of followers will experience a huge reduction.
The change is already happening and people have started noticing the drop in the number of their followers.
Starting with the more popular accounts on Twitter, American Artiste Katy Perry, who is the most followed person on Twitter has lost over 2 million. Also, former US President Obama has lost over 2 million and interesting enough, current US President Donald Trump has only lost 100,000 followers.
