This morning, Instagram users around the world were shocked to discover that their follower numbers had plummeted overnight.
Some users saw their follower numbers depleted by thousands – and they aren’t happy about it.
One user tweeted: “I just lost over 200 Instagram followers and I’m not really sure why.
Instagram added: “Since the early days of Instagram, we have auto-detected and removed fake accounts to protect our community.
A spokesperson told Mirror Online: “We’re aware of an issue causing a change in account follower numbers for some people right now.
