In this era of information, sometimes the truth is ignored for superficial news. Now-a-days, most of the popular leaders, companies have their own verified tweeter accounts. And millions people follow them on social media like twitter. So fascinating!

As a digital marketing company, we run multiple social media optimization campaigns for our clients. A normal routine we do monthly SMO audit for our client’s. This audit helps us to understand the impact of twitter, Facebook and other social media accounts on sales or lead generation.

Out of curiosity we thought to analyze some popular leaders’ twitter account. What we found out is surprising for us. Let us share some of our findings:

  • Donald Trumph – According to twitter audit the American president, Donald trump has 15,910,994 Real and 15,044,248 Fake followers. Means 49% of the followers are fake.

This is quit fascinating information for us.  We are confident; the experts who are handling these accounts must have some strategy.  May be to draw real followers, they are faking. Except this one reason we can’t see any real purpose. Also, we don’t think to have over 35% fake followers is unintentional.

We never suggest accumulating fake followers to our clients.  It may be impressive to show large amount of fake followers to future followers but not worth it for small business owners!  Fake followers can’t add or share values. So, as a digital marketing agency we’ll not suggest such practices.
