    Today I've had contact with a few clients who are noticing massive drops in their Twitter followers that have come from bots (whether real looking or blatantly obvious ones).

    I've spotted a few people lose a few hundred, to a few losing a few thousand (and more) in the space of a few hours.

    My own personal accounts have taken a big hit today as well, is anyone else noticing an increase in bot culling?

    It seems Twitter have really upped their game, or are just on a banning spree of bots today for some reason... anyone got any ideas as to why they're going ape shit over this today?
