About Half of Biden’s Twitter Followers Are Fake


At least half of President Biden’s 22.2 million Twitter followers are bogus, a new audit revealed.

The audit, which was done for the social media giant by software firm SparkToro, found that 49.3% of the president’s followers are “fake followers,” according to Newsweek.

SparkToro has defined “fake followers” as “accounts that are unreachable and will not see the account’s tweets (either because they’re spam, bots, propaganda, etc. or because they’re no longer active on Twitter).”

Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is currently attempting to buy Twitter, has expressed concern over the growing number of fake accounts and proposed a potential crackdown on the sham accounts.

Musk said he believes that 20% of all Twitter accounts are fake and vowed to not go through with his $44M purchase of the social media giant until the issue is resolved.

“My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk said.

“Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”

  1. I see all sorts of accounts, individual, news media, company, with millions or tens of millions of followers that don’t get the engagement I see from some individual accounts with several thousand to hundreds of thousands of followers. Either those millions are bots or they somehow got people to sign up but nobody cares. Compare CNN’s responses to someone like David Burge (@iowahawkblog).

  2. Of course, of my 160 followers I probably only know a couple dozen – and that includes other iotwers. Just saw my latest add – some bathing suit clad girl with an onlyfans account. Alrighty then.
    And no I don’t follow back random followers. Just friends like you guys. 🙂

    I’m liking Musk more and more. In spite of his eccentricities and his billions, he’s still a savvy businessman. And NO businessman buys a pig in a poke, he verifies value before agreeing on a price.
    Making LibTurd heads go ‘splody is a bonus.

    Just like his vote tally in the 2020 Presidential election.

  6. Oooooo! SEC not likey mega corporations who scam their investors with fake anything. Musk may have put his finger on the big lie of all social media.

    And I’m w/you, Uncle Al. That’s probably closer to 80%.

  7. I don’t know … 22 Million absolutely brain-dead morons sounds about right.
    Add in the imbeciles, slap-heads, retards, idiots, and fools and you’d probably get to just over 22 Million.

    izlamo delenda est …

  8. Aaaaand the half are split between people who have to follow him as part of their job or just the usual democrat assholes.

  9. I see the pot callin the kettle black here. Over 81 million votes, to kick the wannabe to the curb. Prove it, but you can’t, because just like the rest of all the nonsense claims made, this is one of them!
