Fake Subscribers: Wasted

At the end of the year, we get rid of unnecessary things, so decided the video hosting service: namely, to get rid of spam subscribers. On the weekend, YouTube checked channels and removed suspicious followers. What is important: even if you are the most honest and sincere blogger, you could still notice a decrease in the number of subscribers. The fact is that usually, spam-subscription services generate subscriptions to several random channels at once, so as not to seem suspicion. The platform warned: if after checking the blogger has less than 1000 subscribers, they will automatically cease to be a YouTube partner.
Ironically, anti-spam tactics influenced the most epic virtual battle between PewDiePie and T-Series. As a result, about 43K spam accounts were removed from Felix’s channel (a drop in the ocean, considering he already has more than 77 million followers!). It’s a bit worse with T-Series: he got minus 216K subscribers.
