Twitter Audit Finds Half of President Biden’s Followers are Fake Bots


After the 2020 election, many Americans began to question the mysterious and unprecedented ‘3am surge’ in votes which pushed Joe Biden over the top, paving the way to the White House. Was it really possible for a previously unpopular and elderly presidential candidate – who barely campaigned during the 2020 Election – could win a record number of presidential votes? 

A possible clue may have just emerged which could shed more light on that puzzling series of events.

According to an audit tool provided by software company SparkToro, it has now been revealed that almost half of Biden’s current total of 22.2 million followers on Twitter – are fake accounts.

Yes, Biden’s many ‘followers’ on Twitter are completely fake followers.

According to analysts, the following has been confirmed: 

  • Just over 49% of Biden’s Twitter followers of the official @POTUS account are fake 
  • More than 14 million accounts who follow Biden’s personal @JoeBiden handle are also either fake or ‘insufficiently active’
  • This latest revelation comes as Elon Musk took shots at Biden and Twitter at a Miami conference 

The question then remains: what else is fake about Joe Biden’s unlikely meteoric rise to power.

Sara Carter reports…

President Joe Biden has an impressive 22.2 million followers on Twitter; but apparently half of them are bots. According to an audit tool from software company SparkToro, “49.3 percent of account’s following the official @POTUS Twitter account are ‘fake followers” reports Newsweek.

SparkToro defines “fake” as “accounts that are unreachable and will not see the account’s tweets, either because they’re spam, bots, propaganda, etc. or because they’re no longer active on Twitter.”

Analysis was conducted based on factors such as location issues, default profile images and new users. The information is of particular importance as Elon Musk has expressed his concern at the overwhelming number of fake accounts on the giant platform. Specifically, he claimed 20 percent of Twitter accounts were “fake/spam accounts” and that the figure is “4 times what Twitter claims” or even higher.

“Musk said early on Tuesday that his $44-billion deal to purchase the social media company could not go ahead until issues with fake accounts were resolved and appeared to criticize Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal” adds Newsweek.

The accusation put the acquisition in jeopardy, with the two men exchanging a series of tweets about the fake accounts issue on Monday.

The back-and-forth comes after Musk tweeted Friday that the deal to buy Twitter was placed on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts represent less than 5% of users.

“My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk wrote. “Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”

“We suspend over half a million spam accounts every day, usually before any of you even see them on Twitter. We also lock millions of accounts each week that we suspect may be spam, if they can’t pass human verification challenges (captchas, phone verification, etc),” Agrawal wrote.

SparkToro’s tool also found that of Musk’s 93.3 million followers, 70.2 percent of those accounts are fake.
