Indian celebs, politicians to face Twitter heat?
The other day, Twitter noted in a statement that it would purge fake profiles and bots on the micro-blogging site. This step is meant to "boost the credibility of follower-count numbers."
And the purge has begun. The likes of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga have lost followers in large numbers. The world-famous Justin Bieber lost 3 million followers, Taylor Swift lost 1.9 million, and Lady Gaga lost 2.6 million. Former US President Barack Obama lost 2.1 million. Celebrity singer Katy Perry lost 1.5 million followers overnight.
Indian celebs and most-followed leaders too are expected to see huge follower loss to the tune of millions, between them. The likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Chopra, etc could face Twitter heat.
