For over one year, Twitter has been removing followers from my account in the exact proportion that new people followed thus maintaining a level of 3600 followers. I have noticed that many progressive females who don’t show their bodies are at this “level” and males who are similar are at about 4500. There are other ‘tiers’ of follower count in different types of account.
That is if accounts don’t buy followers or use botfarms or programs like Buffer.
I only recently gained a small group of new followers which have not been removed … yet. At 3700 approx.
My tweets used to regularly get 400 to 500K views a month. Now they get 25,000 if I am ‘lucky’. I am an award nominated author of 40 books and something quite similar has happened to me here on Medium for the majority of articles. As I am building up my private writing practice I no longer have time to donate to Medium or to inform others of progressive ideas, facts about affordable housing/homelessness, the impossibility of getting small business loans, reminisces of famous authors foolish enough to talk to me, problems with pharma development and marketing of opioids and opioid antidotes, or appalling non-charitable activities of famous ‘foundations.’ Or articles pornifying my own lousy life for the delectation of others.
