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
