Audit Reveals Half of Biden’s Twitter Followers are Fake Accounts

| May 18, 2022

The DailyMail.com published an article claiming that nearly half (49.3%) of Biden’s followers on Twitter are fake accounts.

Almost half of President Biden’s Twitter followers are FAKE, audit reveals as Elon Musk puts deal to buy Big Tech giant on hold over bots

Nearly half of President Joe Biden’s 22.3 million Twitter followers are fake, a new analysis revealed on Wednesday.

The report comes as Tesla founder Elon Musk pumped the breaks on his $44 billion purchase of the social media platform over concerns about the amount of bots active on the site.

Inauthentic Twitter accounts, known colloquially as bots, operate to mimic human interaction on the platform in order to achieve a specific goal.

Some were designed to give people immediate data on things like the stock market and traffic updates, while others were used for more sinister applications such as spreading misinformation online or scamming people out of money.

Roughly 11 million followers of the US president’s official Twitter handle, @POTUS, are either bots or inactive accounts, according to an analysis by Spark Toro.

That’s 49.3 percent of Biden’s total followers on his White House account.

Reading further…

But Biden’s personal Twitter account doesn’t fare much better than the presidential handle.

More than 32 million people follow the president at @JoeBiden, 43 percent of which are reportedly fake.

It’s more fake followers than those linked to the @POTUS account – approximately 14.6 million.

Twitter has about 229 million daily users, according to the company’s own data. The platform has long held that no more than five percent of its accounts are bots or spam.

So, let’s do the math – Twitter claims less than 5% are fake and Musk claims it is closer to 20%.

11 million (@POTUS account) + 14.6 million (@JoeBiden personal account) = 25.6 million divided by 229 million total users and it comes out to 11%.   That is easily above the 5% claim ONLY considering the POTUS and JoeBiden accounts.  Where there’s smoke there’s fire.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the media.  Twitter will probably say “A million here, a million there… what’s the big deal?”

I wonder if some at Twitter were aware of this and that lead to the anxiety surrounding a buyout from Musk.

I guess when you flip the light switch, the cockroaches scurry for cover.

This brings the tradecraft of sock-puppetry to a whole new level. Go big or go home.

Fake Twitter accounts for a fake president? Sounds about right.

LC

I’m not surprised, and it goes further – prior analysis done showed that nearly 44% of Hillary Clinton’s supporters were likewise not real. And 41% of Obama’s. Same for Al Gore, even.

Of course, it doesn’t end with the Democrats. Good ol’ Trump took the highest percentage with 61% fake:

Mmmmyeah, “Orange Man bad…” just like Major Moonbat always shrieked.

LC

How in the world did you get ‘Orange Man Bad’ from that? If you read the article, more followers tends to go along with a higher percentage of fakes. Trump had more followers.

All this is saying is that the Biden numbers aren’t an outlier. If anything, it’s, “Twitter Stats Bad”. No orange men necessary.

USMC Steve

Or did it really? Given how big a hardon Twittle and its minions had for Trump, I find it very hard to believe they would not have been highly motivated to shut down any fake accounts for him.

Sapper3307

And half his voters are?

Deckie

BAHAHAHAHA… oh man, that is rich.

Also heard his Disinformation Governance Board has been put on hold by DHS after a whopping three weeks.

The hits keep on coming, each more golden than the last.

Even CNN+ lasted longer than the disinformation governance board…

I feel bad for Lars, looks like his dream job evaporated before his eyes. Maybe they’ll keep his application on file for one year?

Graybeard

Haven’t seen Lars-boy here lately.
Is he sitting in his mother’s basement whimpering and cuddling his teddy bear?
Zoned out from unknown substances?
In the funny farm?

Funny how he’s not here pontificating on how much better we are under PINO Joe.

Deckie

He still lurks… believe you me… he still checks in, he just doesn’t post. How many times in the past has he said “I’m done with you traitors!” Only to return later.

He has no job and no life. What else is he gonna do between coffee runs for his communist UCB professors?

They should have named it CNN+. That name just sent back on the market.

It’s a lot easier to just tell the frackin truth!
But the ability to respect norms and behave with decency requires a full-formed ego equipped with the capacity to love.
Aaaaannnnnddddd we’re here now.

AW1 Rod

Yeah…..just like the “81 million” people who allegedly voted for this drooling fucktard.

rgr769

Welp, the progs claim their voting counting machines counted 81 million ballots with Biden selected. Of course, no one can vouch for the provenance of those ballots. Just disbelieve your own lying eyes when you watch that video of the woman taking a wheelie of ballots out from under a table and then feed the same stacks of ballots into the scanning/counting machine several times, all occurring after the building was shut down for a bogus water pipe leak.

AW1 Rod

Yup. Nothing to see here, citizen! Move along!

SgtBob

Paragraph the Second: ‘pumped the breaks’? That’s why the New Reporting writer ran off the road, right? His breaks failed.

George V

It says 11 million followers of @POTUS are bots or inactive accounts, I’d guess many of which are dead people. So a Dem president uses the dead to make his numbers look better? This is not surprising.

KoB

Not surprised at all. This mofo has faked his way thru his entire life. Prolly even faked his orgasms. And we all know, well…’cept for LC, that he got a lot of fake votes.

LC

Let’s see the proof that has, so far, apparently eluded all the investigations, including Republican-led ones, which have concluded no such fraud existed. I’ll wait.

Deckie

Please. There is absolutely no way this senile idiot was the most popular candidate in history with the most votes. No. Way.

If you believe that, I got a bridge to sell ya…

Ret_25X

the proof..gee wally, vote counts, votes greater than the population, mules, entire graveyards voting. All documented.

The fact that the courts don’t care proves only that the courts don’t care.

Election fraud in the US is so pervasive that it has been a running gag in movies for almost 70 years.

So please, spare us your ignorant “most secure elections” BS.

USMC Steve

You would not believe it. You may notice that 2000 mules, which documents a whoooole bunch of election fraud, is being studiously ignored by the socialist democrats and their liberal allies. No shrieking claims of lies lies lies, nothing. Over six months ago several of the attorneys general of the fraud states confirmed by statement that more people voted than were registered in their respective states. The smallest amount overage was 10 percent, the highest was 25 percent. The one in Georgia flat out stated there was substantial fraud but that he would not do anything about it. There are facts there, but I suspect you just don’t want to go after them because you are a never trumper.

Steve

Whoever wrote this apparently cannot do basic math.

11 + 14.6 = =25.6, not 35.6

rgr769

Remember what the undercover video shows the managing Twitter engineer saying: At Twitter, we are lefty, left, left, left. I am just about effing “commie” myself. (Paraphrasing his exact words, except for lefty, left and commie, which he said.)

Prior Service

How could his twitter followers be fake if they actually voted for hi… oh. Wait. Never mind.

LC

As a non-political follow-up to the SparkToro link I left above, here’s one from a few days ago estimating that 70% of all of Musk’s followers are fake or inactive, and 23.4% of active followers are fake.

Naturally, these numbers seem a wee bit higher than Twitter’s Enron-style accounting:

https://sparktoro.com/blog/sparktoro-followerwonk-joint-twitter-analysis-19-42-of-active-accounts-are-fake-or-spam/

There are plenty of valid complaints about the methodology used, but it’s the same used to assess Biden’s followers, so in so far as it carries any weight there, it’s likely applicable elsewhere. (I don’t personally think it should carry much weight there, other than to say there are lots of inactive and fake accounts on Twitter, and quantifying that is hard.)

Slow Joe

LC, I don’t give a flying fuck about your arguments. I just look at reality, and America is going down the drain in front of our eyes with the Democrats at the helm.

Every single time Democrats are in power, America is taken down a notch and our enemies grow.

The Democrat Party and their radical friends in the media, educational and entertainment industry are stealing America’s future, my children’s future.

That, is the hill I die on.

Deckie

The fact that they’re so monstrously inept is what frightens me. I can see good ideas that go wrong, but to be this consistently stupid, clueless and lazy has me constantly astonished.

But I’m glad they’re all saying the quiet parts out loud now… it’s just gonna build height and momentum in the coming red wave or contribute to the revolution.

USMC Steve

I get you. I am torn between believing they are just too freaking inept to do anything right, or that they are just seditionists intentionally damaging our country. The first really scares the crap out of me. Not that the second doesn’t as well. But in the second, a good cure would be killing as many of them as possible as quickly as possible. They have already declared war on us.

Deckie

And what angers me most is that even if we take this country back, it would be decades before we’re really back where we should be.

There’s no easy road out of this mess the Democrats have created for us. The event horizon has been passed.

Roh-Dog

I suggest we keep our eyes on the prizes. It ain’t just Demonrats, the Uniparty is a slave to their corporate whoremasters and abusers of We, the People.
-In the House, only 57 Repubs voted against Ukrainian subsidies. Sin.

-John McStain nayed The 0bummer Healthcare Control Act. Hubris.

-How many NWO puppets, who claim to be Republicpukes, have voted for continued unconstitutional measures on: speech, gun, privacy control?

A too many. Both wings of this fetid bird have approached, seized, stolen and STRAIGHT UP HOCKED THE PRECIOUS JEWEL OF LIBERTY!

Roh-Dog

And 11 out of 100 Senators (even the ones ‘in name only’) put rationality before lust.

If we are truly beyond that horizon, would someone please tell the fat lady to warm up her pipes for a shrill cry of “Havoc!”?

Old tanker

Given that president dementia is pretty much nothing but a biological bot himself (or is it “itself”) I am not surprised that there is fraudulent activity regarding his (it’s) followers.

BennSue

The 61% claimed on the Trump acute (or any values used by SparkToro), include accounts that are no longer actively used. I don’t think those figures should be used because it skews the Bot argument by including unused/inactive accounts.

BennSue

Trump account*. No idea why it autocorrected to acute.
