Filipino Celebrities: Fake vs Real Followers

14 Mar

Following my previous blog on who amongst our senatorial candidates have amassed fake and real twitter followers, I also did the local celebrity edition.

Firstly, I would like to emphasized that this blog was not intended to demean or embarrass the celebrities for having fake followers. It is a given fact that once your account has a large number of following, as well as tweeting a certain “hit” word (eg, ipad, weight loss, fitness) there are bot/spam accounts that just follow you, and without your knowledge, they are fake or inactive accounts.

Second, when a celebrity has high number of fake followers, it does NOT necessarily mean that they bought followers to pad their number of followers, which might mean “effective endorser,” “large following,” etc. Again, their followers may have increased because of the bot accounts as described above.

Third, I only included in this mini-research of mine those celebrities whose followers number over a million. If there were others who I failed to include, it was not intentional as I might not be following them. So if you can’t find your celebrity idol’s name in my table, don’t blame me. So let’s just enjoy world peace and here is my magic table…

NB: FAKE no of followers were identified via fakers.statuspeople.com while REAL no of followers were detected via twitteraudit.com. Thus, adding both the fake and real number of followers don’t always have sum up to 100% because both did not use the same software. Moreover, some of the real followers may be inactive but not necessarily fake.
