Divya, who now has a following of 493,000 fans on the micro-blogging website, tweeted on Thursday night: "Aiyyo what happened Twitter..."
Former President Obama lost more than 2 million followers on Twitter this week as the social platform removed inactive and locked accounts from follower counts, according to a preliminary review by The Hill.
U.S. singer Katy Perry, the most-followed user on Twitter, and Lady Gaga lost about 2.5 million followers.
Apparently, a lot of those accounts followed the CEO of Twitter.
By contrast, former President Barack Obama's count fell by 2.1 million followers, or 2.1 percent, to 101.5 million.
'@MisterseunPR' said: "Just lost over a thousand followers".
Coming back to the local scene, we have seen some significant drop in follower counts in some accounts.
Twitter said the accounts are locked after the platform detects "sudden changes in account behavior", which includes tweeting out a large number of unsolicited replies, sharing links that are misleading or being blocked by a large number of users that have been mentioned by the account.
Twitter Inc.'s top executive didn't slide by unscathed in the social-media site's crackdown on fake followers.
Singer Katy Perry saw more than 3 million of the 110 million followers on her Twitter account suddenly vanish, while Justin Bieber's social media account shrunk by 1.4 million.
"This week, we'll be removing these locked accounts from follower counts across profiles globally", said Twitter.
Twitter purge has me down 715 followers. someone has to stop this madness.
Twitter said Wednesday that ordinary people probably won't see much of a difference in their number of followers, which could drop only by four or even fewer.
"This specific update is focused on followers because it is one of the most visible features on our service and often associated with account credibility", Vijaya Gadde, Twitter's legal, policy, and trust and safety lead, wrote in a blog post.
