Last July I wrote about fake followers on Twitter. One account I researched had 7,673 followers, now they have 3,858. They’re a startup in San Francisco. As you can see here, their account was purged by exactly 39 followers everyday. I think that has more to do with the way Twittercounter syncs their log. They probably just interpolated the daily reduction between the two syncs. The likelihood is that there was a sharp drop-off of hundreds, maybe thousands, in one day. Seems like Twitter are cracking down on those fake followers?
