A new era is dawning for Indian influencers on Twitter as they unlock the potential for monetization through Elon Musk's innovative venture.

The CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk, has said that Twitter users who are not using their accounts regularly may soon notice a drop in their follower count. “We’re purging accounts that have had no activity at all for several years, so you will probably see follower count drop,” wrote Musk.

Drop in Follower Count if Inactive Accounts Will Foster an Engaging Community

Musk’s idea behind reducing the followers count of inactive users is to foster an active and engaging community on the platform. However, inactive Twitter users should be prepared for a significant drop in their followers. As per Twitter policy, users should log in to their accounts at least once every 30 days to avoid permanent removal due to prolonged inactivity.

The controversial blue tick verification service is a part of the same Musk’s strategic move which aims to combat the persistent issue of bot accounts and create a more authentic and trustworthy online environment. The above-mentioned measures including the removal of inactive accounts and the reevaluation of the verification process, demonstrate Twitter’s strong commitment to enhancing user experiences and upholding the integrity of the platform

Musk recently found himself under a light-hearted controversy when he jokingly threatened to transfer National Public Radio’s Twitter account to another organization, after the public broadcaster stopped posting content to its 52 official Twitter feeds in protest against a Twitter label that implied government involvement in its editorial content.
