Twitter Changed it’s Rules and Celebs Lost Millions of Followers Overnight

Twitter announced on Wednesday that this week it would no longer include “locked” accounts in users’ follower numbers in an attempt to restore faith in those counts.

As a result twitter users like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Barack Obama, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Ellen Degeneres, Christiano Ronaldo and YouTube all saw drops of more than 2 million followers each.

And  the funniest part Twitter’s own corporate Twitter account lost more than 7 million followers.

Twitter says it locks an account if it detects sudden changes in behaviour, such as tweeting lots of unsolicited replies or mentions, posting misleading links, or being blocked by numerous accounts after mentioning them.

Twitter did this to lower the down the suspicious activities , So the outcome of this policy change is going to be good!
