Bermuda’s Top 50 Twitter List For June 2016

June 13, 2016

[Written by Don Burgess]

Katy Perry and Drake aren’t alone. Less than a week after the prominent musicians’ Twitter profiles were hacked, a Russian-based email account claimed that it has stolen more than 32 million passwords from twitter.

It appears the accounts were stolen via malware rather than being hacked from Twitter itself.

If you have had suspicious activity on your account you might want to change your password.

Last week Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Microsoft agreed with the European Union to help stop hate speech.

They promised any violent, racist and illegal content which is flagged will be reviewed within 24 hours to help stop it from going viral.

Locally, The Real Duddley retook fifth place on the Bermuda Top 50 Twitter List from Ledrew Fox. However, it’s a rare account where he’s following almost 20,000 more people than are following him.

WWE and Fox commentator John Layfield added almost 6,000 followers to his Bermuda leading total of more than 700,000. The America’s Cup, reggae star Collie Buddz and myself round out the top four.

Singing group Thirdstory, which features Bermudian Ben Lusher, continues its meteoric rise up the list, cracking the top 20 for the first time.

The numbers for this report were taken on June 7.
