Former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has taken an axe to the list of accounts he follows on Twitter.

Only 26 have survived the cut, and of those only 17 are people — mostly heads of state, political journalists and four family members.

He has 987,000 accounts following him.

Here’s a look at who remains:
