Those of you who read my post on clickbait (Don’t Take the Clickbait!) will understand what is going on here. Apparently Twitter has started purging what they consider “bot” or automated accounts that have a tendency to pump up a person’s number of followers. This purge has got a lot of celebrities and others in a tizzy over their loss of followers. It just goes to show what I said in the article — UN-following someone you don’t agree with is much better than retweeting them/commenting on them. Don’t take the clickbait! Full article below:
From the article: Twitter suspended thousands of accounts overnight and conservatives on the platform aren’t happy about it. Twitter has yet to make a public statement about the issue, but right-wing users believe that they’re being targeted in a mass purge of suspected Russian bot accounts.
