Twitter is removing non-validated accounts
Twitter is all geared up to improve the health of its platform by removing all the not-so-required users. Its new content policy is all set to detect unusual behavior like tweeting unnecessary updates, sharing misleading links or the accounts that have been blocked by a large number of users.
In case users fall in the same category, they need to validate the account and reset their password. If they don’t follow the same, their accounts will get locked and they won’t be able to log in again.
And, the accounts that have been locked will be removed from the followers’ account as well. With this change, users will definitely notice a slight change in follower numbers, with most seeing as little as four or fewer followers removed from their follow list.
“We understand this may be hard for some, but we believe accuracy and transparency make Twitter a more trusted service for public conversation,” writes Twitter’s head of legal, policy, and trust and safety teams, Vijaya Gadde on the Twitter blog.
