70% of Obama Twitter Followers Fake

LINK

quote:

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.

Duh. At one of my companies we have over 7000 followers and only maybe 100 are real. It cost us about $1000 to buy them but it adds instant credibility to first time shoppers.

Sounds like how he wants to get votes too.

If Romney putting his dog on top of his car tells us what kind of person he is, what does Obama buying over 10 million Twitter followers tell us about him?

What does it do for a President in the final few months of his presidency?

Twitter needs to put a stop to this shite if they actually care about credibility.



Which they probably don't if their recent API changes are any reflection of their business model.

Got to wonder how many of these fake followers will be voting in November.
