Battling Fake Accounts, Twitter to Slash Millions of Followers

        accounts from users' followers on Thursday, signaling a major
        new effort to restore trust on the popular but embattled
        platform.  The reform takes aim at a pervasive form of social
        media fraud. Many users have inflated their followers on
        Twitter or other services with automated or fake accounts,
        buying the appearance of social influence to bolster their
        political activism, business endeavors or entertainment
