RT @Twitter: What are locked accounts?
When we see sudden changes in behavior, we lock accounts. We reach out to the owners of the accounts and unless they validate the account and reset their passwords, we keep them locked with no ability to log in. [t]2018-07-13 07:39:32
RT @Twitter: What does this mean for your follower count?
Most people will see a change of four followers or fewer; others with larger follower counts may experience a more significant drop.
