  • Why President Trump Just Lost Over 100,000 Twitter Followers

This is PM Modi's personal Twitter account, which is the third most followed Twitter handle globally after those of US President Donald Trump and Pope Francis.

In the global scene, United States President Donald Trump lost 326,118 followers on Thursday and later gained 5,339 followers on Friday.

According to The Hill, which reviewed the impact of the Twitter purge, "Obama, who had 104 million Twitter followers prior to the crackdown, had roughly 101 million as of Thursday afternoon". The president now has 53.1 million followers, according to his account page.

Don't be surprised if you see your follower count drop on Twitter. Twitter on Thursday kicked off its latest effort to rid the platform of fake or frozen accounts.

The social media platform is removing locked accounts from follower counts to increase credibility. "We understand this may be hard for some, but we believe accuracy and transparency make Twitter a more trusted service for public conversation", it explained.

His predecessor Barack Obama gained 18,622 followers on Thursday and lost 2,357,631 on Friday.

Charles Oakley and Las Vegas might be a bad combination
However, a source close to Oakley told TMZ that the issue was "an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved". Dolan suggested Oakley was drunk and heckling him, and Oakley was arrested for assault, harassment and trespassing.

The number of Modi's followers went down to 43.1 million from 43.4 million. On Wednesday, Twitter announced that they were performing a "purge", of sorts, which would get rid of frozen or suspicious accounts.

"Over the years, we've locked accounts when we detected sudden changes in account behaviour", Twitter spokeswoman Vijaya Gadde said.

Going by the current count, Shah Rukh Khan happens to retain his top spot as the "Most Followed Bollywood Actor" on Twitter right now.

"In these situations, we reach out to the owners of the accounts and unless they validate the account and reset their passwords, we keep them locked with no ability to log in".

Mr Trump lost over 304,140 followers from the start of the week, while Mr Johnson lost 28,961. Justin Bieber lost close to the same amount as the former president, but many other celebrities saw their numbers drop too and that includes the CEO of Twitter himself. Amitabh Bachchan has in fact faced the biggest hit by losing out on the maximum number of followers.
