Whoops! Fake President Obama Just Lost 2 Million Fake Twitter Followers

Twitter made big news recently by revealing that it had purged 70 million FAKE accounts over a span of 60 days. The result is that Barack Obama has lost 2 million FAKE or inactive Twitter followers.

Dean Garrison — July 13, 2018

Former Congressman Steve Stockman was on to something 5 years ago.

Stockman boldly accused former President Barack Obama of using a following of FAKE “spambots” to fight against the 2nd Amendment in 2013.

A study of messages received by Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36) reveals two-thirds of the “grassroots supporters” backing President Barack Obama’s #WeDemandAVote anti-gun campaign are computer-generated spambots.

“Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud. Obama’s anti-gun activists are trying to defraud Congress using the same scam that sells ‘male enhancement pills.’ Every day thousands of Americans call, write and email the Capitol opposing Obama’s anti-gun schemes. Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress,” said Stockman.

Twitter made big news recently by revealing that it had purged 70 million FAKE accounts over a span of 60 days. As reported by Inc.:

Zap, pop, fizzle.

That’s the sound of Twitter eliminating 70 million fake accounts over the past 60 days. Company reps say they’ve been weeding out Russian bots, spam purveyors, and other malicious Twitter accounts at the rate of about 9.9 million per week. 70 million is a big drop from the 336 million active user count the social-media company has mentioned recently.

The reasoning has to do with recent government pressure to deal with a growing fake news crisis. Bots spray links out to unsuspecting users, who accept headlines and news reports without really considering the source. It’s created a crisis because, in the last presidential election, the uncontrolled spread of misinformation made an impact with voters. Now, the social-media giants are trying to combat the problem.

The result is that Barack Obama has lost 2 million FAKE or inactive Twitter followers.

Scott Morefield of The Daily Caller reports, “Former President Obama’s Twitter follower count dropped by more than 2 million as the platform continued its removal of fake and inactive accounts.”

Tough break for the former President.

It should be noted that fake accounts are a reality on Twitter, but President Donald Trump lost only 300,000 followers. Morefield adds, “President Trump reportedly had 53.4 million Twitter followers before the Twitter purge, and has lost around 300,000 for a Thursday evening follower count of 53.1 million.”

Now, if someone could just purge those fake voters.

It has been reported that there are 3.5 million more registered voters than adults in the U.S.

 Bummer lost 2.3 million and the number is rising,  or so far, 2% ... So far the bum still has 101 million followers left.... wonder how many of them are actual people and not bot spammers.
And as for Donald, he lost only 325,000 out of 53 million... or just 0.7% of his followers...   Sure says a lot about the credibility of the left... which doesn't surprise us none.  You know, having to try to win even if by lies and deceit...

 "Former President Barack Obama lost more than 2 million Twitter followers on Thursday as the social-networking platform launched a new crackdown on fake accounts, according to a preliminary analysis from The Daily Beast.

At press time, the Twitter purge had cost Obama 2,346,119 followers, or more than two percent of his audience on the site. With more than 101 million remaining followers, Obama remains the third most-followed person on the site, a few million followers behind singers Katy Perry and Justin Bieber.

Other major political accounts were also hit by the purge, with President Trump losing 325,038 followers so far, a 0.7-percent decrease. As the first day of the Twitter purge wrapped up, Trump had more than 53 million followers left."

Walker: As of Friday (yesterday) a judge in St.Paul put the order out for the MN State to provide the actual numbers of voters in the last election...Much to the dummynitwits in the DFL they cannot explain why there were a couple of hundred thousand voters registered in the Twin Cities than there are voters...Me smells of some more of the lefties stacking the deck like they did when they put Freaken in some years back....

Demmies aint real strong on explanations. I hope Gowdy and crew fries em all up like French fries. I had my doubts on Gowdy going in but I'm starting to think maybe we'll see some results on all of it, just wish zero and klintoon were there to enjoy the proceedings along with their cohorts.
