One of the largest and popular social networking site, twitter confirmed that millions of fake and inactive profiles have been following known celebrities including the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

The picture below shows profiles are fake, inactive and active:

“71% Of President Barack Obama‘s Twitter Followers Are Fake.” By this measure, of the President’s nearly 19 million followers, 13.5 million are bogus. Irrespective of your political affiliation, one must admit that nearly three-fourths is an extremely high percentage of phony followers, causing some pundits to suggest that shenanigans may have been employed to bolster the President’s social status.
