An audit has found that almost half of Joe Biden’s followers on Twitter are bots.
Between this and Joe Biden’s fake White House set, you have to wonder if anything about this administration is genuine.
It all just reinforces the image of Joe Biden as a phony.
Audit Shows Nearly Half of Biden’s Twitter Followers Are Bots
A tool created by the software company SparkToro that distinguishes real accounts from fake accounts known as “spambots,” or “bots,” found that almost half of President Joe Biden’s 22.2 million Twitter followers were not real, Newsweek reported on Tuesday.
The audit conducted by SparkToro’s tool found that 49.3% of those following the official @POTUS Twitter account are bots based on an analysis of location issues, default profile images, date of creation, and more.
The company’s tool also found that Biden’s account has more fake followers than most.
The news comes as Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is in the process of closing a deal with Twitter worth $44 billion, which reached a roadblock Tuesday after Musk threatened to walk away if the company fails to crack down on its bot issue, according to the New York Post.
Musk made the statement through a Twitter post, implying the value of the company could be distorted. In the post, he said the “20% fake/spam accounts, while 4 times what Twitter claims, could be *much* higher.”
How embarrassing for the White House.
Half of Twitter followers of Joe Biden are fake?
This pandora’s box needs to be open, almost everyone has bot followers.
