YouTube Says It Fixed A Bug After Creators Complained Of Sudden Subscriber Purge

“There was a ‘dead subscriber scrub’ on YouTube,” the creator Philip DeFranco tweeted yesterday. “Many ‘Tubers are claiming it removed active subs. Make sure you still follow your faves.” He jokingly added: “I heard YouTube deleted so many subs today that they are sending people to take back PewDiePie‘s diamond plaque.” (PewDiePie is reported to have lost more than 600,000 subscribers in the so-called purge.) – Geoff Weiss, Tubefilter
