Who Wants to Spend the Rest of Their Day Tracking Fake Twitter Followers?Posted by Nathan S. on 08/16/12 | Filed under Opinion
Anyway, it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that there are any number of ways to artificially boost your Twitter numbers. Pay some dude $50, he'll pay some guy in the Phillipines $10 to create 100 fake Twitter accounts, and boom, you've got 100 new followers by the morning. So thanks to the good people who came up with Fake Follower Check, we can now figure out just how much fuckery is going on behind the Twitter scenes. Let's do this thing.
In fairness I really should start with @RefinedHype:
Not bad, but now I really want to know who the 3% motherfuckers are who are fucking my shit up. Fuck y'all. Moving onto (exponentially) bigger fish, let's give @IAmDiddy a try:
Ouch. 30% of 7.5. million followers is still some seriously heavy presence, but is anyone surprised that things aren't always what they seem when it comes to Sean Combs? I thought not.
Ok, let's see...how about @WizKhalifa? I've seen him drive some serious traffic to sites by posting a link on his Twitter, I'm guessing his numbers are pretty damn good. Drum roll please...
See, right there is why I love this program. Both Wiz and Diddy have about the same number of followers, approximately 7.3 million, but Wiz' "real" followers numbers are three times as high. At least as far as the Twitter-sphere is concerned, Wiz is laying the smack down on Diddy.
For the record, while that "Inactive" number is important, that's the number that's an artist can't control. It's not anyone's fault if someone real follows you, then quits Twitter. It's really those Fake and Good numbers I'm interested in.
With that said, I'm not saying you should get your friends together and start wagering money on different people's Fake Twitter numbers, I'm just saying you should not not start wagering money on different people's Fake Twitter numbers.
Either way, be sure to share your most interesting findings in the comments below. And yes, you're welcome for wasting the rest of your day. Enjoy:
