After Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wrote to Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal claiming that his follower count had suddenly dropped, the microblogging platform said today that the numbers are “meaningful and accurate”. After this, Twitter’s spokesperson has responded to it.

Twitter has a zero-tolerance approach to platform manipulation and spam, the spokesperson said.

“We fight spam and malicious automation strategically and at scale with machine learning tools, and as part of those consistent and ongoing efforts to ensure a healthy service and credible accounts, follower counts can and do fluctuate,” the Twitter spokesperson told news agency ANI.
