Indian Twitter users are voicing their displeasure over a sudden drop in their follower count. Some users claimed to have lost hundreds of followers in minutes, while others claimed to have lost thousands of followers all at once, significantly lowering their following.
Although the network has conducted a clean-up operation to remove bots and defunct accounts, Twitter has begun reinstating its followers.
Twitter is known for cleaning up accounts to ensure that they are secure and free of spam and bots. Twitter made a similar effort to clean up the platform earlier this year, stating, “The number of followers on your account may fluctuate from time to time. Accounts that have been asked to authenticate their password or phone number are not included in follower numbers until they have done so. This is something we do on a regular basis to help keep all accounts safe and prevent spam.”
In a related incident, Twitter announced the deletion of over 3,000 accounts used for “foreign state-linked information operations.” According to Reuters, the banned Twitter accounts were related to operations attributed to six different countries, including Mexico, China, and Russia.
In the meanwhile, Twitter has announced that users would not be able to share private individuals’ media files, such as images or videos, without their permission.
The firm had previously prohibited media files that revealed sensitive information such as a person’s home address, identity documents, or contact information. The new criteria, on the other hand, aim to penalize posts that may harass people or infringe on their privacy.
The new regulations were published barely one day after Twitter introduced Parag Agrawal as the company’s new chief executive officer (CEO), following the departure of Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey.
