Spotify has been busy doing some housekeeping this year! Their next point of focus is removing inactive, deleted or fake followers.

Users of the Spotify for Artists platform received this email advising that artificial accounts will no longer count towards the follower number for an artist. This is nothing to worry about, however some artists may see a drop in followers during this time.

If you receive this email from @spotifyartists please don’t be worried, you won’t lose any real fans!
