Kanye West literally broke Twitter.
The hip hop magazine XXL actually went and did some real reporting, unlike the mainstream media, and broke the story that Kanye West’s dramatically reduced Twitter-follower count was due to what they claim is an algorithm glitch. The mainstream media was trying to claim that Kanye’s count went down because he supported free expression and President Donald Trump.
“While that ensued, thousands took notice of West’s Twitter follower count, which seemingly took a devastating decline from 27.8 million to 18.6. However, according to Twitter, it all appears to be a glitch on their end.
XXL reached out to a Twitter spokesperson who responded via email with the following: “We can confirm that Kanye’s follower count is currently at approximately 27M followers. Any fluctuation that people might be seeing is an inconsistency and should be resolved soon.”
