“Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people). Only way for me to get the truth out!” – Donald Trump Tweet 8-1-17
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” – Abraham Lincoln
Donald Trump has 35 million followers on Twitter but someone in the “fake news” business noticed back in May that his followers doubled overnight and as any good “fake news” reporter would do, or should do, they did a little investigating. They discovered using a program called Twitter Audit, a service that assesses the authenticity of one’s followers, that half of the Presidents followers were fake or Bots. Trump went from 15 million to 30 million followers in one weekend.
So how did this happen? Are we to believe that over one weekend 15 million people decided that they needed to hang on “our” Presidents every……Tweet? Sadly, no. What “someone” did on behalf of Trumps ego was buy followers, fake accounts. I think the going rate is between $400 to $500 per million fake followers.
Based on the Twitter Audit I just ran (see above) only 58% or 20 million of Trumps 35 million followers are real. And based on the responses I read to Trumps Tweets it seems, at least to me, that the vast majority of the 58% that follow him do so for entertainment and ridicule purposes only.
Now you may be asking yourself “Why would Trump want to pad his numbers with fake followers?” First I can’t believe anyone would ask that question of “our” egomaniac President but maybe it’s because Barack Obama has 92.5 million followers (90% real according to Twitter Audit) and we all know how much he loves all things Barack Obama.
I can’t believe some of the shit this man Tweets but at this point I don’t want him to stop. He wears his emotions on his Twitter sleeves. He telegraphs his every move, his every thought and best of all I am convinced his Tweets will be used as evidence at his impeachment……..soon. I can assure you Robert Mueller, the special counsel for the Justice Department investigating Trump and Russia, doesn’t want him to quit Tweeting.
So keep Tweeting to your 20 million real followers and 15 million fake followers Mr. President. Keep digging that hole. Keep piling up the evidence of your incompetence. Truly it is the only way in hell you will ever Make America Great Again.
