Twitter to purge fake accounts

Post by Anaxagoras » Thu Jul 12, 2018 7:30 am

I wonder how much this list will change:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_m ... r_accounts

Currently it says that Katy Perry has the most followers on Twitter at 110 million, followed by Justin Beiber at 107 and Barack Obama at 104.
Trump if you're interested has 53 million followers, which makes his account the 18th-most-followed on twitter.

But, how many of those followers are real? :notsure:

It says the list was last updated on June 19, 2018.

If only they had included that information in the article.

Ray "Murderer!" Lewis lost a few hundred thousand as did Britt McHenry.

Shaq lost over a million.
