Twitter moves to delete fake followers from users’ accounts

 

 

Twitter will on Thursday start a major operation to delete accounts of fake followers, its president in charge of trust and safety, Vijaya Gadde has announced.

Vijaya Gadde said in a statement that the clean-up will affect accounts that were frozen over the years for
suspicious behaviour.

“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.
