Twitter to Slash Millions of Followers - Battling Fake Accounts


Battling Fake Accounts

Twitter to Slash Millions of Followers


Twitter will begin removing tens of millions of suspicious accounts from users’ followers on Thursday, signaling a major new effort to restore trust on the popular but embattled platform.


The reform takes aim at a pervasive form of social media fraud. Many users have inflated their followers on Twitter or other services with automated or fake accounts, buying the appearance of social influence to bolster their political activism, business endeavors or entertainment careers.
Twitter’s decision will have an immediate impact: Beginning on Thursday, many users, including those who have bought fake followers and any others who are followed by suspicious accounts, will see their follower numbers fall. While Twitter declined to provide an exact number of affected users, the company said it would strip tens of millions of questionable accounts from users’ followers. The move would reduce the total combined follower count on Twitter by about 6 percent — a substantial drop.
An investigation by The New York Times in January demonstrated that just one small Florida company sold fake followers and other social media engagement to hundreds of thousands of users around the world, including politicians, models, actors and authors. The revelations prompted investigations in at least two states and calls in Congress for intervention by the Federal Trade Commission. In interviews this week, Twitter executives said that The Times’s reporting pushed them to look more closely at steps the company could take to clamp down on the market for fakes, which is fueled in part by the growing political and commercial value of a widely followed Twitter account.
Officials at Twitter acknowledged that easy access to fake followers, and the company’s slowness in responding to the problem, had devalued the influence accumulated by legitimate users, sowing suspicion around those who quickly attained a broad following.
“We don’t want to incentivize the purchase of followers and fake accounts to artificially inflate follower counts, because it’s not an accurate measure of someone’s influence on the platform or influence in the world,” said Del Harvey, Twitter’s vice president for trust and safety. “We think it’s a really important and meaningful metric, and we want people to have confidence that these are engaged users that are following other accounts.”
The market for fakes was also hurting Twitter with advertisers, which increasingly rely on social media “influencers” — mini-celebrities who promote brands and products to their followers — to reach customers. In recent months, advertising and marketing firms have put pressure on Twitter, YouTube and other platforms to help ensure that influencers have the reach they claim. Last month, the consumer goods giant Unilever, which spends billions of dollars a year on advertising, announced that it would no longer pay influencers who purchased followers and would prioritize spending advertising dollars on platforms that took steps to stamp out fraud.
In an interview on Tuesday, Unilever’s chief marketing officer, Keith Weed, praised Twitter for its decision. “People will believe more and read more on Twitter if they know there is less bot activity and more human activity,” Mr. Weed said. “I would encourage and ask others to follow.”
For Twitter, the reform comes at a critical moment. Though it is a smaller company with far fewer users than Facebook or Google, Twitter has been sharply criticized for allowing abuse and hate speech to flourish on its platform. And along with other social networks, Twitter was a critical tool for Russian influence during the 2016 election, when tens of thousands of accounts were used to spread propaganda and disinformation. Those troubles dampened Twitter’s prospects for acquisition by a bigger firm, and the company, which went public in 2013, did not turn a profit until the final quarter of last year.
In recent months, Twitter has taken a number of steps to improve what Ms. Harvey and other company officials call “healthy conversation” on the platform, including rooting out fake and automated accounts. Last month, Twitter announced that as of May, its systems were “locking” almost 10 million suspicious accounts per week, far more than last year, and removing more for violating anti-spam policies.
Twitter locks an account — blocking it from posting or interacting with other users — when the company suspects that it is automated spam, or that it has been compromised, usually by having its password hacked or leaked. Most spam accounts are quickly removed. But until now, even after Twitter privately identified an account as suspicious and locked it, that account would still be included among the legitimate followers of a user.
Most of the time, according to Twitter, the locked accounts are not included in the monthly active user count it reports to investors each quarter, a critical Wall Street metric for social media companies. But the locked accounts were nevertheless allowed to inflate the follower counts of a large swath of users.
That choice helped propel a large market in fake followers. Dozens of websites openly sell followers and engagement on Twitter, as well as on YouTube, Instagram and other platforms. The Times revealed that one company, Devumi, sold over 200 million Twitter followers, drawing on an estimated stock of at least 3.5 million automated accounts, each sold many times over.
Tens of thousands of automated accounts were created by stealing profile information from real users, including minors. One such victim, a teenager named Jessica Rychly, had her account information — including her profile photo, biographical information and location — copied and pasted onto a fake account that retweeted cryptocurrency advertisements and graphic pornography.
Twitter officials believe that the new policy will disrupt the marketplace for fake followers and curb abusive practices used to create fake accounts: Since suspicious accounts will now be stripped from users’ followers, the company hopes there will be less incentive to purchase fakes in the first place.
Twitter has also begun to permanently remove more suspicious accounts. After The Times’s investigation was published in January, Twitter removed over a million accounts from the followers of Devumi customers — accounts that the company said violated its spam policies.
The Washington Post reported last week that Twitter suspended more than 70 million accounts in May and June.
Twitter estimates that as a result of Thursday’s changes, the average user will see his or her follower number drop by four — but that number would be much higher for some accounts.

Slain rapper XXXTentacion gets sendoff at memorial


Slain Rapper XXXTentacion
gets sendoff at Memorial in Florida 


SUNRISE, Fla. — 100’s of fans gathered Wednesday at a public memorial in a hockey arena here for rising young rapper XXXTentacion and thousands more were expected to view the body of the murdered young singer.


About 1,000 people were in attendance as of noon but officials at the BT&T Center arena said up to 19,000 more people were expected throughout the day. Phones and other electronics were not permitted inside the arena.
As fans queued to pay their respects, Broward County detectives searched for a possible second suspect in XXXTentacion’s murder. On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office posted a bulletin informing the public that they are trying to locate and question Robert Allen, 22. It says he was captured on surveillance video outside the motorcycle dealership on June 18, the same day the rapper was fatally shot.

Last week, prosecutors arrested Dedrick Williams, 22, and charged him with first-degree murder in the case. He is currently being held without bail in the Broward County jail.

The memorial viewing for the slain rapper was held at the BB&T Center, a 20,000-seat arena in Sunrise, Fla., that is home to the Florida Panthers hockey team. 


The memorial was organized by his family and fans and advertised on his Instagram account last week. "Come say your final goodbye," it read.
A tribute video of the rapper played during the first hour of the viewing, and celebrity guests were expected.

Victoria Monet Gets Personal with Life After Love, Pt. 1



Victoria Monet


She expresses the side effects of a love lost in her latest EP Life After Love Pt 1.  Released last February, the EP may be Victoria’s most personal and honest project to date. After breaking up with her boyfriend of six years, she went in the studio and allowed herself to articulate all of her various emotions in song form. The direct result was a vulnerable album that courageously tells that story of a woman who has been heart by love.


In the Intro, Victoria Monet tells her love story over an airy melodic track. With a background in poetry, Victoria uses spoken word as a way to convey her message. She describes the initial feeling of falling in love, experiencing heartbreak and finding love from within.

“I realized that after all, there is life after love.”

The beginning monologue sets the tone for the rest of the album. It is clear that the audience is getting ready to enter the world of Victoria which includes all of her private thoughts, sex life, fears and insecurities.

The next track gets right to the point. Wish I Never Met You is a fiery hip hop and rock infused track that shows Victoria in regret. The song finds her reflecting on all of the things in the relationship that she mistakenly overlooked at that time. She now realizes that all of those moments were actual signs that the relationship was not going to work out.

“Broken windows, broken glass. Memories of the fights we had. We should be in jail for that.”

She is angry but she is more importantly finding her self-awareness and building the strength to move on.

The single Freak sounds like an upbeat sexy record but in reality, Victoria is comparing herself to all of the girls that her boyfriend cheated on her with. She wonders what the other girls had that she does not have. Whatever she is lacking in, she promises that she can fix it.

“Do you want a freak? ‘Cause that’s what I’ma be.”

The age old question of, “am I good enough for you” comes into play. The track itself contains heavy 808 and a catchy hook. It is very easy to sing along to.

One of the most emotional songs on the EP is a track entitled No Good.

No Good speaks of the tug a war that many experience in relationships. It’s that make up and break up merry go round that in this case, becomes very toxic. Victoria tries her best to leave the situation but her ex continues to say and do the right things to keep her coming back.

“You’ll say any and everything so you can keep me in your space tonight”

One of the highlights of the EP is the song Ten New Friends. It is a very sexy and stimulating record about sexually pleasing one’s self. After the break up, Victoria tries to prove to her ex that he is no longer needed to fulfill her needs. She has ten fingers that can get the job done just fine.

Victoria Monet’s Life After Love, Pt. 1 is available everywhere on all digital music outlets.
