Twitter Purge, Part Two

Looks like I spoke too soon about being unaffected by Twitter’s purge.

Last month I wrote that I was virtually unaffected by the Twitter purge that hit United States Presidents Trump and Obama (see related article, Thankful for real Twitter followers). This month, I looked at my follower statistics and noticed a sharp decline on Wednesday, August 15, 2018.

On Tuesday, August 14, 2018, I had 4,416 followers.

But on Wednesday, August 15, I had only 4,344 followers – a loss of 72 followers or 1.63%.

Is Twitter continuing to purge inactive/fake accounts? Or did some of my followers take offense to me writing about SAP Analytics Hub?

Have you noticed a dramatic change in the number of your Twitter followers?
