Default Twitter cracks down on 'fake' followers

This report is from BBC News Technology:

Fake Twitter users: Celebrities lose followers amid crackdown - BBC News
Quote:
Some of the world's biggest celebrities have lost millions of Twitter followers after the company cracked down on "locked" accounts.

US singer Katy Perry, the most-followed user on Twitter, and Lady Gaga lost about 2.5 million followers. Barack Obama went down 2.1 million.

Twitter said it had taken the decision due to its "ongoing and global effort to build trust".

It follows renewed scrutiny over fake news and users on social media.
