24Bit Episode 10: A discussion on the recent Twitter Purge.

24Bit Episode 10: One of the hashtags that was trending last week on Twitter locally was #TwitterCleanUpKE. If you missed it, too bad. But this conversation started as a result of Twitter deciding to crack down on fake and automated accounts.

Twitter decided to remove suspicious accounts from users’ followers and this gave a ‘’meaningful and accurate’’ view of their twitter follower count.

Some top celebrities, politicians, and influences were so much affected by this with some losing as much as close to 1 million or 500,000 followers.
