Twitter Announces a Change That May Drop Your Follower Count!

Twitter has announced a change that may affect your follower count if you have any followers with locked (aka suspicious) accounts.

“Follower counts are a visible feature, and we want everyone to have confidence that the numbers are meaningful and accurate,” a blog post on Twitter read on Wednesday (July 10). “Over the years, we’ve locked accounts when we detected sudden changes in account behavior. In these situations, we reach out to the owners of the accounts and unless they validate the account and reset their passwords, we keep them locked with no ability to log in. 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.”

Twitter notes that most users will see a drop in about four or less followers. Accounts with larger followings may see “a more significant drop.”

To find out more, including which kinds of accounts are being deleted, head on over to Twitter. This change will be implemented this week.
