An author and activist with more than 563,000 Twitter followers lamented losing more than 160,000 followers.
I don’t know what @facebook is up to 😡😡
I have gone from 170,000+ followers, to fewer than 10k. Checked a couple of other allies with big followings and same for them. Right before the election when we really need to reach and mobilize folks, Facebook has artificially muted us!

A writer from Bangladesh named Taslima Nasreen revealed on Twitter that she suffered a “tsunami”-like loss of close to 900,000 followers.
Facebook created a tsunami that wiped away my almost 900,000 followers and left only 9000 something on the shore. I kind of like Facebook’s comedy.
