ATLANTA, Ga. -- Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich has boasted about his 1.3 million-strong following on Twitter, but a report out Monday suggested a majority of his virtual flock is fake.
"I have six times as many Twitter followers as all the other candidates combined," Gingrich told the Marietta Daily Journal in an interview published Sunday. He was discussing a Politico report that chalked up the former House Speaker's Twitter success -- he has more than twice as many followers as the social media-savvy Sarah Palin -- to his "personal touch" since he "tweets and manages his Twitter feed himself."

I’m sorry. I meant WW2
Correction: WW2 not WW1
Why are we discussing anything from Gawker. Those people are all perverted Fascist Pigs.
OK. It would be embarrassing if they had declared them all dead and one pops up. Then again, the MSM should be embarrassed by 100% of the crap they do.
We’re all getting old. I remember when WW1 vets were the age of my mom who’s in her mid 70s. Now they are all gone.
That makes sense. Most of Newt is a fake as well.
It's very telling. The more I think about it. I heard the WH does something similar. They have fakes posting on conservative forums.
I don’t see how anyone can come to the conclusion that Newt would garner anything more than 1-2% of the popular vote. OTOH, I guess there is a majority of people who believe that Juan McCain can feed himself his own oatmeal, so WTF do I know?
That so pisses off the establishment.
We've been pounding nails into it for fifteen years now, and he keeps coming back for more.
I’ll be 79 next month and have Facebook and Twitter accounts.
I love Facebook and hate Twitter.
Good for all the seniors in your life-——they sound like an up-to date bunch.
The only problem I have is I’m a “friend” of a couple of my grandchildren and I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut about some of their posts. I do keep my thoughts to myself though,or they’ll “unfriend” me. LOL
Interesting but no, not a WWI veteran.
I know. I made the correction already
I don't blame you there. I use Twitter for business only. I really could not get into Twitter for anything personal like I do for Facebook. Truthfully, I love Facebook and cant get into Twitter either.
Yup, but if this is true. It will expose Newt as a fake in an obvious way.
It's not your age that's showing. I don't understand why Twitter so popular. But I'm glad it is. :)
I will say that most of his Facebook fans are from outside of the country. I noticed that while he was still running for President.
Oh yeah, I see—sorry.
