No word yet if Streamers xQc and Sodapoppin paid for those fake followers.​

Earlier this week, Twitch announced via Twitter that it was taking action against a supposed 7.5+ million accounts suspected of follow-botting or view-botting. The site did warn that some streamers may see "sudden decreases" in their numbers. Indeed, streamers who lost hundreds or thousands of followers seemed relieved to finally have more accurate numbers to work with.
