What do you think of Twitter's attempt to ensure "meaningful and accurate" follower counts?
Celebrities on Twitter have suffered a cull in millions of their followers after the social media giant performed a purge on dormant and locked accounts this week.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga and his 2017 presidential running mate Kalonzo Musyoka had also lost a significant number of followers at 11,159 and 3,387 respectively.
"If we detect sudden changes in account behavior, we may lock the account and contact the owner to confirm they still have control of it", the company stated.
"Follower counts are a visible feature, and we want everyone to have confidence that the numbers are meaningful and accurate".
Twitter's top executive didn't slide by unscathed in the social-media site's crackdown on fake followers.
YouTube's official Twitter handle witnessed a 2.8 percent dip and now has 70.39 million followers.
The drop in Twitter followers came after the platform formally announced on Wednesday that it would begin the process of removing "locked accounts" from follower counts in an effort "to build trust and encourage healthy conversation on Twitter".
Twitter had warned that as a result of the move, the number of followers displayed on many profiles may go down. The change in follower counts doesn't affect the active user totals Twitter tracks and reports on a quarterly basis to investors, according to the company.
Twitter said that most users will see a drop of "four followers or fewer".
In the regional front, Uganda's Kaguta Museveni lost 2,590 followers on Thursday and gained 75 on Friday.
