Hillary Clinton Got Busted with over a Million FAKE Twitter Followers. And it appears other politicians have there share of fake followers, but Hillary Clinton has the most.. LOL!

hillary clinton fake twitter followers

Fake Twitter followers abound among the U.S. presidential candidates as they gear up for the election in 2016. And Hillary Clinton isn’t the only candidate with more than a million of them. GOP frontrunner Donald Trump also has well over a million fake followers. Other candidates have them, too, but not as many (in large part because they don’t have as many followers, period).

In fact, almost every person on Twitter has some fake followers. I have them, but since I have relatively few followers compared to real celebrities, I have fewer fake ones. Chances are you have fake followers, too.

As far as the election goes, present numbers show Clinton and Trump well ahead of the pack in both presidential polling and Twitter followers — the real and the fake kind. So if we were to consider the size of a candidate’s Twitter following as a kind of crude proxy for political popularity or electability, then questions about what it means to have a large number of fake Twitter followers become even more fascinating.

You can bet social media reputation management firms are working overtime on this campaign. Lots of shills working comments on Facebook attacking the other parties fans.

An Alleged Hillary Shill Talks About Being Paid To Smear Bernie Sanders.

You’ll notice it quite plainly. When this article is posted to social media networks, a number of users will not read the story. I’m not talking about your typical illiterate Facebook commenter, either. No, these are people paid to read headlines in a binary way: Pro-Hillary, or Anti-Hillary, for example. They will either extol her virtues or writhe and moan and cry persecution.

You encounter these people all the time, whether you realize it or not—they’re paid internet commenters, and this headline should attract a few of them. Then, there will be others who post things like #FeeltheBern, or “Bernie Sanders only president for 2016.” These people, known as “Bernie Bots,” tend to operate autonomously. The grassroots movement of the Sanders campaign churns them out like religions train proselytizers. They’re foaming with conviction. That’s the nature of a populist campaign.

The so-called Clinton shills, on the other hand, are the product of something else—a tactic every billionaire donor and political Super PAC is rightly suspected of employing. They’re the product of a shady practice known as astroturfing; the infiltration of websites and social networks by people with an agenda, reportedly working in a pay-per-post scheme. They may or may not be sincere in their convictions, but they are paid to express them. It’s a shady tactic employed by PR firms, special interest groups, marketing agencies, and—of course—Super PACs. The objective is straightforward: manipulate online discussion in a manner favorable to your client, or in this case—your candidate.
