Although Hillary Clinton boasts a robust 3.6 million Twitter followers, not even a vast right-wing conspiracy would be able to interact with 2 million of them. According to two popular online measuring tools, no more than 44 per cent of her Twitter fan base consists of real people who are active in using the social media platform. And at least 15 per cent – more than 544,000 – are completely fake.
Let me say this loudly, so people who are up there in age - like Hillary Clinton - who may be hard of hearing (or reading) can understand...
No more than 44% of Hillary Clinton's Twitter fan base consists of real people
That means more than half of her Twitter followers are fake, SPAM, sock puppets, pornbots, Nigerian princes, and people who claim that you just won a brand new iPad.
Even more embarrassing, this isn't even the first time she's been busted doing this. When she was Secretary of State, she had her agency - aka, the STATE DEPARTMENT - spend $630,000 to bulk up her Facebook likes. Don't get me wrong, paying for Facebook ads is something small businesses
do. However, our tax dollars to the State Department likely could have been spending $630,000 on...like, say, anything other than bulking up their Facebook likes.
When reached for comment, Hillary said...HA! You didn't actually think she'd let anyone ask her a question? Silly peasant.
