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.
In this latest massive purge, Twitter says it is suspending more than one million accounts per day with the target appearing to be primarily bots and spam accounts.
