Being an influencer is all about the numbers. This is why it comes as no surprise that a young South African influencer is questioning the fact that she slowly but surely seems to be losing numbers on one of her most popular tweets.
Keabetswe aka @akreana_ on Twitter recently shared a tweet about how her pinned tweet, which has over 111k retweets, has been losing both likes and retweets. This is something that she is not too happy about since influencers make bank depending on how many people they were able to influence, basically.
"Really wish I knew why Twitter keeps removing the likes and RTs on my pinned tweet," she wrote.
Soon many people who had been experiencing the same issue headed to the comment section to share their thoughts. Read a few of them below.
"We all know whose stealing those likes and RTs... He's a friend of mine from Limpopo. He likes stealing tweets."
"It's the Twitter Purge. Even now it's still happening. Accounts are being suspended and deleted every day by Twitter forces, when they delete accounts you'll lose likes and retweets even when they suspend."
"I think the removed likes and RTs are people whose accounts have been suspended."
