Don’t be alarmed if you’re losing Twitter followers

Popular celebrities, journalists on Twitter and even people with lesser number of followers are experiencing a substantial drop in numbers


Twitter users are reporting a massive drop in followers, some by hundreds and some by thousands. 

Officially, there’s no reason for this to happen. It’s not just happening to celebrities and journalists, it’s happening to the average user as well.  

Perhaps Twitter is performing a period clean-up, purging fake accounts and spam bots.

Inactive accounts that lie dormant for long periods also get the axe.

In June this year, Twitter had this to say when performing a clean-up, “You may notice some follower count fluctuations from time to time. Accounts that we’ve asked to confirm their password or phone number aren’t included in follower counts until they’ve confirmed that info. We do this regularly to help prevent spam and keep all accounts secure.”
