A new tool allows you to see how many fake followers you really have. It does show that some of the world’s most popular Twitter accounts, have a lot of fake followers.
[Fake Follower Check] examines Twitter relationships, said Rob Waller, a founder of StatusPeople. “Fake accounts tend to follow a lot of people but have few followers,” he said. “We then combine that with a few other metrics to confirm the account is fake.”
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 sure how good the tool is and how accurate it is, but if it is close to accurate it does show that some of these big names do have a lot of fake followers.
