New York Times Accuses Barack Obama Of Having Millions Of Fake Twitter Followers To Boost Profile

 70% Of His Followers Are Not Real

Barack Obama

A recent study carried in the New York Times reveals, 70% of President Barack Obama's 18,800,000 followers on Twitter do not exist. The same is being said for pop psycho Lady Gaga. The newspaper explores this fact in the article Twitter Followers For Sale.

There is a phrase on Twitter that states true popularity is not measure in the number of followers one has, as Hitler had millions of followers and Jesus had twelve. Enjoy Twitter. At the end of the day, it is supposed to be a fun way to communicate and exchange ideas. Making it into a popularity contest or trying to have people's tweets removed from the timeline (*looks at Hollywood*) is wrong.
