BUSTED, AGAIN! CNN’s Main Twitter Account Has 17 MILLION Fake Followers!

By

Seems to be a theme with CNN – fake news, fake followers.

The disgraced mainstream media news network has been busted padding its Twitter numbers.

Actually, scratch that. This is more than mere padding.

Breitbart reports:

Of CNN’s millions of followers on their verified Twitter account, over 17 million or 48 percent are fake, according to TwitterAudit.

TwitterAudit determines the quality and score of real and fake followers by taking “a sample of up to 5000 (or more, if you subscribe to Pro) Twitter followers for a user and calculates a score for each follower. This score is based on number of tweets, date of the last tweet, and ratio of followers to friends.”

By comparison, most of the “alternative” right-wing media outlets that CNN and its ilk accuse of being “fake news” actually have real Twitter followers.

And they wonder why Americans no longer trust the mainstream media.
