A Staggering Majority Of Trump's Twitter Followers Aren't Real Or Active, Far More Than Other Politicians, New Study Reveals

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

SparkToro, the software that helps advertisers and public relations professionals determine who their followers are, conducted an analysis of Donald Trump's Twitter account and the results were not good. It turns out over 61% of Trump's followers are fake. 

According to the website:

Last week, SparkToro launched our third free tool, a service that analyzes Twitter accounts to estimate what percent of their followers are bots, spam, propaganda, or inactive accounts. By far the account that’s been most checked by users of the tool is @realdonaldtrump. Since there’s great interest in that account, we decided to expand our usual sample analysis (which looks at a random group of 2,000 followers) and run every single one of the account’s 54,788,369 followers through our system.
