New Tool Shows How Many Fake Twitter Followers You Have

Socialbakers

Socialbakers’ new tool gives Twitter users the ability to see how many of their followers are actually real and who are fake.

The social media analytics company based in the Czech Republic has released its new tool, aptly called Fake Followers Check.


The tool uses several guidelines to distinguish the ”fake or empty followers” from the real ones. The fake followers more than likely do these things:
  • The Following to Followers ratio is less than 50 Following to 1 Follower.
  • Some tweets are repeated more than three times each.
  • They have never tweeted.
  • Phrases like “diet,” “make money,” and “work from home” are overly repeated.
  • Over 90% of the tweets are retweets.
  • More than 90% of the tweets are links and the profile has a following to follower ration of 7 to 1 or more.

Followers that are thought to be inactive are those who have “only 1 or 2 retweets on profile” or their latest tweet is “older than 3 months.”

Socialbakers claims that the Fake Followers Check tool gives the ability to “type in any Twitter handle you want, which means that you can analyse anyone from Justin Bieber to your competition.”

Those who choose to use the tool however are limited to only 10 requests per day.

Will you be using Fake Follower Check? How many fake followers do you think you have?
