Half of Joe Biden's Twitter Followers Are Fake, Audit Reveals

Over half of President Joe Biden's current 22.2 million Twitter followers are fake, according to an audit tool provided by software firm SparkToro.

SparkToro's algorithm determined that 49.3 percent of accounts following the official @POTUS Twitter account are "false followers" based on a survey of a range of indicators, including location issues, default profile images, and new users.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has expressed concern about the number of fake accounts on Twitter, and a potential crackdown may result in users like Biden losing a significant number of followers.

Musk said early Tuesday that his purchase of Twitter "can not move forward" until CEO Parag Agrawal can show that less than 5% of users are bots or spam accounts.
