Twitter begins operation to wipe out millions of “fake” followers

“This week, we’ll be removing these locked accounts from follower counts across profiles globally. As a result, the number of followers displayed on many profiles may go down,” she wrote. The New York Times newspaper said Twitter planned to begin deleting tens of millions of accounts starting Thursday, slashing the total followship by six per cent.

The measure is reportedly aimed at users who have inflated their followships by paying for automated accounts to fake social media influence.
