    Obama has millions of fake Twitter followers

    Apparently obama is not as popular as he pretends to be. How pathetic do you have to have to be to fake twitter followers.


    "President Obama's Twitter account has 18.8 million followers -- but more than half of them really don't exist, according to reports.A new Web tool has determined that 70% of Obama's crowd includes "fake followers," The New York Times reports in a story about how Twitter followers can be purchased."

    I will give President Obama credit for having the most digitally-savvy campaign strategy in history, both in 2008 and 2012. I guess they do have an app for that; and I guess Twitter followers can be purchased. It's all smoke and mirrors, folks.

    Who the hell even knew, let alone cared, how many twitter followers the president was supposed to have had?

    Now, if he had claimed to have had 18.8 million ideas about how to get this nation back on track financially, how to get the troops home from Iraq and Afganistan without leaving civil wars behind, how to end illegal immigration, or how to pick the Bill of Rights back up and dust the footprints off of it, then it would matter whether those ideas were fake or not.

    Maybe I should have put this on the bias media forum. Farther down in the article they try to excuse obama with this fabricated BS. What a joke.

    "Republican opponent Mitt Romney has far fewer Twitter followers -- not quite 900,000 -- but it's a good bet that some of them are fake as well."


    No evidence whatsoever just lib media spin, I demand this gets moved to bias media forum damnit.

    EDIT: "A good bet"????? WTF kind of journalism is THAT???

    Actually, being a follower of Romney on Facebook it isn't a good bet, it tends to be true. There are people who like him that are Obama supporters or are pissed off Republicans that do not like him. This is just part of the digital age now.

    If twitter is deciding how people vote, we're more screwed than I thought.

    That's the same with half of the crap on Twitter.

    It's a social media plague-designed primarily for popularity contests. Of course followers were going to be sold on eBay.

    Re: Obama has millions of fake Twitter followers

    I forgot, why do we care how many twitter followers he has? I'm still walking a razors edge between the two candidates, but even if I was fully decided at this point, I wouldn't follow them on twitter. Nobody posts anything important or mind boggling on twitter. Heck, the political tweets I've seen make the biggest splash were just straight stupid, not important. *COUGH* Santorum *COUGH*
