Twitter Latest News – Twitter Kick Spammer Butts!

following follower Twitter

Firstly, I saw a scary event just happened or maybe it’s a blessing in disguise! Loads of followers & following numbers drops 68 people after a refresh and it seems like a horrible thing had happened!

Using a TwitterCounter Website, I saw the horror charts!

I went around asking and found out from a fellow twitter friend @gorikain about an update in twitter status update website that they are correcting the following & follower count and removing some spammers.

…..those with large followings may see significant changes as we correct for spam accounts and data inconsistencies. No legitimate followings should be affected—we’re just cleaning up artifacts in the system.

I bet many of you twitter friends out there suffered a even more serious drop in followers & following numbers if so do share your numbers if possible in the comments section :D

    I lost 300 plus. I couldn't have 300 fake followers, could I ? This morning, my 14,279 updates become 28,279 updates. So somebody has managed to tweet 10000 times for me when I was sleeping. i am annoyed and I don't know what to do.

    I think twitter misreported your number of tweets previously so it simply corrected it back to the correct numbers hehe

    For the followers…haiz I think either it's spam bots removed or they screwed up the following numbers …(maybe by doing a backup with old data LOL) muahaha then says it's a clean up :D
