And here comes the reality check! Nobody messes with Twitter, you see. In a major crackdown conducted today, Twitter has lashed out all the bots and fake followers who have been misusing Twitter so far. Their intention was simple – to cleanse the micro-blogging site of all the abusers and make it bearable for the ones who are genuinely there to make use of the platform in the best way possible. Say for that matter, Twitter had even issued a statement before conducting this drill saying, “Most people will see a change of four followers or fewer; others with larger follower counts will experience a more significant drop. We understand this may be hard for some, but we believe accuracy and transparency will make Twitter a more trusted service for public conversation.” Fair enough, we say…. but there are quite a few Bollywood celebrities who have got largely affected by this move.
