‘Most followed person’ Katy Perry lost millions of followers in Twitter’s spam account crackdown
I have to laugh!
You know why I love math? Because it's the same in every language! Let's work through this word problem together:
If Witness sold fewer than 1 million copies worldwide and only 266,300 attended her world tour, who are the extra 106 million people following her on Twitter? Because it's certainly not fans!
Katy's allegedly the "most followed person on Twitter", an accolade that has anyone who pays attention to the charts scratching their heads in confusion. Why do 107 million people follow her? Did they click the follow button in 2012 when she was a pin-up queen and then abandoned their accounts just as Katy abandoned pop radio? The answer might be found in spam bots. Last night, Twitter quietly removed millions of fake follower spam bot accounts from Katy's follower list, but experts think it could be the tip of her fraudulent iceberg.
Last year, DigitalSpy launched an investigation into her follower count, and discovered that only 32 percent of Katy Perry's followers are real people. But I guess that's what happens when you culturally appropriate, make music with the homophobic Migos, and release a half-cooked album masquerading as a woke manifesto. But what do I know? I'm not even verified.
The most popular Instagram posts of 2018 were kind of terrible (and like 60 percent Stormi)

We texted our one-night stands to ask when we could exchange Christmas gifts and things got MESSY ?
They were *not* excited to hear from us

The holidays are great because you get to eat as much as you want, binge drink in front of your parents, and flex on all your old high school acquaintances. But they're also great because they encourage us — in our eggnog induced stupors — to message risky things to all the people we definitely…

So with Riverdale Season 3 Episode 7, there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that I’m starting to think that the Riverdale writers are actually reading my recaps, or at least spending a lot of time scouring r/riverdale, because they FINALLY decided to stop jumping around madly from one disjointed plotline…
