The most-followed account on Twitter belongs to popular singer Katy Perry, who lost 1.5 million followers; the number now stands at 108.1 million.
Twitter made an announcement on Wednesday, as we also reported yesterday that Twitter is letting go of locked accounts and hence locked accounts will no longer be included in people's follower numbers.
"This week, we'll be removing these locked accounts from follower counts across profiles globally", saidTwitter.
Since the clean-up started, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lost 2,84,746 followers (43.1 million currently) while Rahul Gandhi lost over 17,000 followers (7.22 million).
It follows renewed scrutiny over fake news and users on social media.
Twitterannounced the purge was coming and told users that most would typically see a loss of usually fewer than four followers. Perry, who had 110 million followers before the purge, now has 107 million followers.
According to Twitter, the new measures are aimed at improving accuracy in a bid to make the site a "more trusted service for public conversation". The politicians now have 101 million and 53.1 million followers, respectively.
Twitter argued that the recent move was aimed at building users' confidence and reflected the fact that follower counts are "a visible feature" on the platform.
"Over the years, we've locked accounts when we detected sudden changes in account behaviour". The social media company then locks such accounts.
Twitter says for an average user, the follower count is likely to drop by 4 but for those having over thousands of followers the effect can be quite significant as is the case with Modi.
Starting Thursday, Twitter has been locking fictitious accounts for bulk tweeting, posting large number of unsolicited replies, or sharing links with misleading information.
Well, it is now happening and people have started noticing the drop in follower accounts.
As Twitter continues to rid its platform of suspicious accounts, many users, including influential profiles like U.S. President Donald Trump, could see a significant drop in followers. Even Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey lost followers, but he didn't appear upset about it.
Twitter said owners of accounts will not be able to log in unless they validate the accounts and reset passwords.
