Um, By The Way, 70% Of O’s Twitter Followers Are Fake


The good news – for Obamabots: O has 18.8 million Twitter followers. The bad news – for Obamabots: 70% of them don’t exist. As an aside, while I was writing this post, Rush Limbaugh brought up the very subject – live. Coincidence? Too funny.

Anyway, as reported by USA Todayreferencing The New York Times, neither of which are bastions of conservatism:

President Obama’s Twitter account has 18.8 million followers – but more than half of them really don’t exist, according to reports. A new web tool has determined that 70% of Obama’s crowd includes “fake followers,” The New York Times reports in a story about how Twitter followers can be purchased.

“The practice has become so widespread that StatusPeople, a social media management company in London, released a web tool last month called the Fake Follower Check that it says can ascertain how many fake followers you and your friends have,” the Times reports.

“Fake accounts tend to follow a lot of people but have few followers,” said Rob Waller, a founder of StatusPeople: “We then combine that with a few other metrics to confirm the account is fake.”

For the record, the Regime has denied buying Twitter accounts. Of course it has.
