FAKE NEWS, FAKE FOLLOWERS: Twitter Audit Reports CNN Has 17 Million Fake Twitter Followers
TwitterAudit has revealed that the news isn’t the only fake thing about CNN…
TwitterAudit.com is a site that determines the number of real and fake followers by taking “a sample of up to 5000 (or more, if you subscribe to Pro) Twitter followers for a user and calculates a score for each follower. This score is based on number of tweets, date of the last tweet, and ratio of followers to friends.” According to a recent TwitterAudit calculation, almost fifty percent of CNN’s verified Twitter account are FAKE. Breitbart elaborates:
TwitterAudit states that these results are not definitive but do provide insight into whether or not a Twitter account gained followers through illegitimate means: “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.” In comparison, Breitbart New’s verified Twitter account has a TwitterAudit rating of 96 percent.
This breaking news sheds a whole new light onto CNN. Not only are they publishing fake news, but they are so desperate to spread it, they have to create fake twitter profiles that will popularize their propaganda. When will we finally see the light of day and put an end to the mainstream media monopoly?
