Losing followers

Post by shaily » Mon Jan 11, 2021 3:01 am

Hi all,
It seems a lot of accounts have been suspended / deactivated by Twitter... I have lost around 1000 followers in past 3 days. Has anyone experienced same?
Cheers,
Shaily

I haven't heard about it, but it could be twitter having a purge of fake accounts. If I hear of anything I'll let you know

Twitter on the ban rampage after what happened in the US. Going after bots / users pushing conspiracy theories. I imagine lots of normal users will get caught in the net.

Hopefully all settle down soon. Just have to wait
