Obama's phantom presence
Exclusive: Andrea Shea King discovers president's 'followers' are fakeNearly two-thirds of Obama’s Twitter followers are either fake or inactive.
How do we know that? By using an app developed by Status People. It’s called “Fakers App,” and more than 150,000 people have already used it to find out what their follower quality is.
So I ran a test on Obama’s Twitter handle, @BarackObama. The result? Of his 20,014,187 followers, 32 percent are fake, 40 percent are inactive and only 28 percent are good.
