Conservatives are Losing Tons of Twitter Followers

Videos by OutKick

If you’ve had a chance to check your Twitter followers this morning, your ego is probably damaged. Oh, unless you’ve been retweeting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, CNN, and Mike Florio. In that case, your popularity is surging.

Since the middle of the week, Republican politicians, conservative media personalities, and a variety of right-leaning accounts have claimed they are losing Twitter followers at the same rate ESPN lost viewers after High Noon‘s debut.

Take a look:

Twitter says it routinely deletes and/or suspends spam accounts. Per Twitter’s support page, it regularly “challenges accounts to confirm details like email and phone number.” If neither is provided, Twitter says “these accounts aren’t included in follower counts.”

That doesn’t sound politically-driven — as long as you are convinced that users who fail to provide the mandatory information only follow one political party. If don’t believe that, you might question the following numbers:

Kamala Harris added nearly 100,000 followers, wow.

To recap the week online, Twitter banned Trump, Google removed Parler from its app store, Apple is threatening to ban Parler, conservative accounts are losing thousands of followers, and Nancy Pelosi emerged as a Twitter star.

Happy Saturday.

  1. Let Twitter die. They’re committing suicide. Don’t get angry about it; use the alternatives like Parler, Minds and Gab. Let capitalism fucking work, instead of bashing your heads in on the Twitter walls. They’re not going to change. Ever. LET THEM SUICIDE.

  2. There’s Gab out there.

    Besides the minute the liberal echo chamber is in power they’ll either start eating each other or head to the more ‘conservative’ sites to find their enemies again. They just can’t stand not being offended or trying to be cancel culture.

  3. Talk about a conspiracy.
    Apple, Google and now Amazon are all removing Paler within 24 hours of each other.
    Amazon is kicking them off of their servers to essentially shut the site down.
    This is why Twitter felt free to kick conservatives off of Twitter.

  4. It’s Twitter. Who gives a shit. It’s a millennial, leftist platform where a small minority of users make a bunch of noise and insult people all day. If that’s your thing, great. If not, ignore it.

  5. just wait until the WH account suddenly has 100 million followers on Jan 21st.

    what is the betting line for Biden’s resignation … or will we have a co-potus situation?
