Obama has millions of fake Twitter followers

70 Percent Of Obama's Twitter Followers Are Fake

In a report released on Friday, it was revealed that most of President Obama’s 18.8 million Twitter followers are fake. Based on figures revealed in a New York Times article, more than 13 million of the President’s Twitter followers simply do not exist. Republican Candidate Mitt Romney is not faring much better. He only has 900,000 Twitter followers, but most of them are also fake.

The Times used a new web tool to arrive at their conclusions:

“If accurate, the number of fake followers out there is surprising. According to the StatusPeople tool, 71 percent of Lady Gaga’s nearly 29 million followers are “fake” or “inactive.” So are 70 percent of President Obama’s nearly 19 million followers.”

I’m not worried about millions of fake twitter accounts; I’m worried about millions of fake votes.

That’s nothing.

Obama probably has millions of fake birth certificates.

And millions of fake voters.

And millions of offshore anti-American donations.

No straight man would spend that much effort championing gay causes.

Every single poll I hear every day I figure half to three fourths of what the figures states in Obamas ratings. If its 45% its really more like 20% or less.

Buying up twitter followers is becoming a pretty standard internet PR tactic. It’s like search engine optimization, a little shortcut to boost your visibility on the internet.

Heard this on the radio today. Apparently it’s pretty common, but it sounds as if he compulsively overdid it. Come on, 19 million followers? Please.

And thanks for all the pings, Civ!

Romney probably wont have time to comment on the issue. He will be too busy explaining his tasteless birther joke that he made earlier this afternoon.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

A very real possibility is Romney not winning the popular vote but winning the EC vote. I can already hear the screams of another stolen election. Maybe all that ammo the gov has been buying really will be needed.

Type "twitter buying followers" into any search engine. It's apparently a big business. Reminds me of Alinsky's Rule 1: "Power is not only what you have, but what an opponent thinks you have. If your organization is small, hide your numbers in the dark and raise a din that will make everyone think you have many more people than you do." Typical.

It’s not that they’re fake, it’s more that they are artificial.
