Twitter is purging accounts that follow Medical Freedom Influencers
August 7, 2020 — Twitter is “temporarily restricting” accounts en masse, especially those that tend to follow Medical Freedom influencers. This purge is being felt by many Medical Freedom content creators today such as Eileen Iorio, Maryam “the bee lady” Henein as well as myself.
Here is just a small sampling of my followers who were “temporarily restricted” today

When I went to who.unfollowed.me to track my new follows and unfollows, it was easy to see which accounts that “unfollowed” me today were “temporarily restricted” since it lists that they are now following “0” (zero) accounts, as shown in the following screenshot:
I watched my followers very closely today, which went as high as 6,067. By the early evening that number plummeted by 60 to 6,007. I gained a new 20 followers since then and, as of 8:56pm EST, I currently have 6,027 followers. Again, who.unfollowed.me reflected the fact that I had just lost 60 followers today.
