Not only do we have a pathological liar in the White House, we have an adolescent pathological liar.
The POS is worse than some pimply-faced adolescent who measures his popularity by how many meaningless “friends” he has on Facebook. USA Today reports Aug. 24, 2012, that 70% of Obama’s 18.8 million Twitter followers really don’t exist, that is, they’re fake.
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.
“The practice has become so widespread that StatusPeople, a social media management company in London, released a Web tool last month called the Fake Follower Check that it says can ascertain how many fake followers you and your friends have,” the Times reports.
“Fake accounts tend to follow a lot of people but have few followers,” said Rob Waller, a founder of StatusPeople. “We then combine that with a few other metrics to confirm the account is fake.”
The Times writes: “According to the StatusPeople tool, 71% of Lady Gaga’s nearly 29 million followers are ‘fake’ or ‘inactive.’ So are 70% of President Obama’s nearly 19 million followers.”
The POS’s campaign denies buying Twitter followers.
