Twitter Crackdown

Subscribe by email:


Did your follow count just drop? I received an email from @tless that I’d lost 60 followers on Twitter. I’m not really phased by that, since I don’t really put much stock in how many people are following me. I mean, I want followers, but I only want quality followers who are engaging. According to TechCrunch, Twitter has eliminated a bunch of spam accounts.

If you notice this morning that your follower count on Twitter dropped dramatically, don’t be alarmed. It is just Twitter cracking down on spam accounts and bots that automatically follow people. So chances are those weren’t real people anyway.

I’m actually good with that. Not that it harms me for fake accounts and bots to follow me, but I’d like to see the communication medium kept as pure as possible. Spam accounts make it less credible.
