Senatorial Candidates: Fake vs Real Followers

13 Mar

Have you ever wondered how many fake twitter followers you were able to amass throughout your time in twitter?

There’s a website fakers.statuspeople.com where you can check how many of your followers are fake, inactive and good members. I tried checking my own account and here is the report that I got:

Curiously, I checked about our senatorial candidates who among them have good vs fake followers using the same software. In a tabular form, I presented each of the account’s statuses. Please be warned that the status may change from time to time as one person acquires new followers.

Do take a look.

The free version of the software does not however show the definitions of what a faker, inactive and good followers.

The software shows us then that the number of followers the candidate has would always be tantamount to the number of their political supporters. The problem now is how to convert those inactive members to be active or good followers, and to convince them to be a supporter and in turn campaign for their candidacy.

On another website, twitteraudit.com, I tried to check on my number of real followers and this was my rating:

Similarly, I audited each senatorial candidate’s account using the same application and yielded the following results:

About TwitterAudit

Each audit takes a random sample of 5000 Twitter followers for a user and calculates a score for each follower. This score is based on number of tweetsdate of the last tweet, and ratio of followers to friends. We use these scores to determine whether any given user is real or fake. Of course, this scoring method is not perfect but it is a good way to tell if someone with lots of followers is likely to have increased their follower count by inorganic, fraudulent, or dishonest means.

TwitterAudit is not affiliated with Twitter in any way.

For feedback, please email us at hello@twitteraudit.com.

    Survey’s are not always to be true , survey is just a way of getting information through limited people .
