Twitter Cleans House of followers, Spammers Purged
Did you notice a drop in your twitter followers and following in recent hours?
“For some time, the follower and following counts we display have been incorrect for some folks. We’re soon to push a change that will address this issue. This means that the count you see in your sidebar should match what you see on your follower and following pages.”
“However, a consequence of this change is that follower counts will drop for some people. In particular, those with large followings may see significant changes as we correct for spam accounts and data inconsistencies. No legitimate followings should be affected—we’re just cleaning up artifacts in the system.”
If you’ve been the target of spam followers, you might notice a reduction with both your follower and following counts on twitter. Please leave us a comment, whether you have or have not lost followers.
