A recent audit of cable news network CNN’s Twitter account shows that it has 17 MILLION fake followers. Well, I suppose if you are striving to be the top name in fake news, you should also have the most amount of fake Twitter followers, right?
One of the problems with Twitter is that it is stock full of fake accounts that are used to spam people with ads. And many accounts have a lot of these fake followers, especially high profile accounts like CNN’s.
But there is a service that is able to determine how many followers connected to an account are Internet bots or fake advertising spam accounts and that service was recently used to look at CNN’s Twitter feed.
