The man who wasn’t there
Barack Obama has a “fake” problem that has dogged him for the past four and a half years. His birth certificate is of questionable origin, he lied about his family history, he has a fake Social Security number, none of his classmates at Columbia can seem to remember ever attending classes with him, and he has a well-documented history of making either completely false statements and murky half-truths.
So perhaps it is only fitting that this man, whose entire life history appears to be fabricated from whole cloth, has the most number of fake Twitter followers on the face of the earth. And oh, almost forgot to mention all the people who voted for him who are fake Americans.
From Daily Mail UK: Among influential U.S. political tweeters, President Barack Obama is the undisputed king of the fake followers. A Mail Online analysis ranks his sizable Twitter following as the most deceptive total among the 21 most influential accounts run by American politicians: More than 19.5 million of his 36.9 million Twitter followers are accounts that don’t correspond to real people.
The four phoniest accounts in the sample, which included Democratic and Republican Party leaders in Washington, D.C., were those belonging to President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, first lady Michelle Obama and the White House communications shop.
Of the president’s 36.9 million Twitter followers, an astonishing 53 per cent – or 19.5 million – are fake accounts, according to a search engine at the Internet research vendor StatusPeople.com. Just 20 per cent of Obama’s Twitter buddies are real people who are active users.
Overall, the five most influential accounts linked to the Obama administration – the first lady has two – account for 23.4 million fake followers.
Biden’s nonexistent fans make up 46 per cent of his Twitter total, with 20 per cent being ‘real’ followers. The White House’s followers are 37 per cent fake and 25 per cent active; the first lady’s primary account is 36 per cent fake and 29 per cent active. The Daily Caller reported on Tuesday that Michelle Obama’s Twitter followers included nearly 2 million nonexistent people, a number that lines up with MailOnline’s findings. source – Daily Mail UK
