As Musk Calls Out Twitter… Audit Reveals Half Of Biden’s Followers Are Fake

(Liberty Bell) – Given the fact that Twitter has become an arm of the radical left, it should come as no surprise that it’s littered with bogus accounts especially where Joe Biden is concerned.

Elon Musk’s attempt to buy the social media company has turned into quite the revelatory process and the massive number of “spam bots” is coming to light.

Musk’s purchase of the company has been put on hold as he attempts to gain more information on just how many Twitter accounts are actually fake and according to a report from Tuesday, his concerns are justified.

An audit of Joe Biden’s supposed 22.2 million followers on the platform has revealed that about half are fake accounts, according to Newsweek.

Is anyone surprised? But this is the guy who supposedly got 81 million Americans to vote for him. Right.

The analysis was done using an audience research tool provided by the software company SparkToro and it looked at a variety of factors, including location issues, default profile images and new users.

The analysis found that 49.3% of the accounts following the usurper-in-chief Biden are totally fake. That’s a whopping 11 million accounts.

According to SparkToro, a fake account is defined 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 or because they’re no longer active on Twitter).”

The results of this analysis are just downright embarrassing for Joe Biden, fortunately he has no shame.

Honestly, 22 million followers really wasn’t that much to begin with but he’s supposedly the leader of the free world and only has around 11 million actual, real-life followers. That’s pretty sad. He’s even less popular than originally thought and he was already pretty unpopular.

SparkToro, however, found that Biden’s account was not alone. There were many others with massive followings from fake accounts. Musk’s account, for example, is followed by 93.3 million followers but SparkToro found that 70.2% of those are fake.

These findings have only reinforced Musk’s concerns about the user base of the platform that he offered $44 billion to purchase.

It’s only exposed the fact that Twitter has either knowingly or not lied about how many fake accounts make up the platform. At the beginning of the month, Twitter claimed that less than 5% of its accounts were spam or fake, according to Reuters.

The company acknowledged that its “estimation of false or spam accounts may not accurately represent the actual number” but wow, it seems to be worlds apart.

On Friday, Musk announced that the deal was “temporarily on hold pending details” about Twitter’s fake account calculations — but said he remained “committed to acquisition.”

On Tuesday, however, Musk said that the deal will not go any further until he has more information on how many accounts on the platform are fake.

Musk estimates that around 20% of all accounts are bogus and he’s expressed concern that the number could actually be higher.

Just like our federal government is a big lie, so is Twitter.

This is a pretty significant revelation. If a massive amount of Twitter’s user base is fake that could drastically drop the value of the company.

There must be an accurate accounting of spam accounts or “how do advertisers know what they’re getting for their money? This is fundamental to the financial health of Twitter,” Musk tweeted.

The billionaire said Tuesday that his purchase of the company “cannot move forward” until Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal shows proof that less than 5 percent of accounts are fake.

It doesn’t sound like Agrawal is going to be able to do that.

Musk has even called on the US Securities and Exchange Commission to get involved and on Tuesday he tweeted, “Twitter claims that >95% of daily active users are real, unique humans. Does anyone have that experience?”

When someone responded by suggesting the SEC should begin an investigation, Musk replied, “Hello @SECGov, anyone home?”

This could have major implications for the deal to buy the company. A significant number of fake accounts could drive down the value of the company thus driving down the price of the deal.

The dispute has already had an impact on Twitter’s stock with shares dropping from $45.09 on Thursday to $37.62 on Tuesday.

Perhaps Musk will end up acquiring Twitter for a lot less than he originally planned to.

Either way, it sure is fun to watch Twitter unravel.
