Katie Hopkins, one of the UK’s most outspoken voices on social issues has gained over 1 million followers on Twitter.
Katie Hopkins has managed to achieve the 1 million status on Twitter, despite hundreds if not thousands of reports to the platform over the nature of her Tweets.
Many find the tweets to be offensive, however, Twitter has rarely found a reason to remove tweets and have not unverified or deplatformed the former Celebrity Big Brother star unlike other right-wing commentators, such as Milo Yiannopoulos.
She frequently comments on migration, race, Brexit and transgender issues. Her comments on Twitter generate thousands of replies from her fanbase – and the controversial pundit has often Trended on the platform because of her commentary.
The former Daily Mail and Sun writer was even investigated by the police over allegations of hate crimes (transphobia) due to her Tweets, however, no charges were ever brought against her.
In a message to her new followers Katie wrote, “Welcome to all my new followers. This is your place for your views to be shared & uncomfortable truths to be told. Don’t like me? No matter. Have something important to share. Great.”
