Top Twitter users lose 2% of followers on average post policy changes

Jul 13, 2018 16:47 IST

Twitter changed its policy on Thursday to battle fake news, bot accounts, and other attacks on the platform's credibility. As a result, 100 of its most popular users lost 2% of their followers on an average, since accounts locked because of suspected fraud weren't being counted anymore. The new policy could cause trouble, considering a lot of top-tier users employ themselves as so-called influencers, using their Twitter following.
