Twitter finally did it. Tens of thousands of fake and bot accounts were taken down in a bid to have "meaningful and accurate" follower counts. But the impact of Twitter's purging act could have made a lot of people upset as many account holders lost followers at the count of millions.

Katy Perry lost 1.3 million followers, Barack Obama lost 3 million while the official Twitter account lost the highest, 7.5 million followers, in just a day. All this due to Twitter's major crackdown on fake accounts or those that had suspicious activities.
