Mitt Romney Violated Twitter’s Terms of Service by Buying Fake Followers
An analysis of Mitt Romney’s one day gain over 100,000 Twitter followers has revealed that most of his new followers are fake accounts.
On July 21, Mitt Romney’s Twitter account suddenly gained over 100,000 new followers in a day. This development was odd, because Romney wasn’t even campaigning due to the Colorado movie theater shootings.
An analysis by Barracuda Labs sheds some light on who, or more specifically what these new followers are. Note: the analysis included the four days after the sudden spike in followers.
