Apparently, it’s desperate times indeed for President Barack Obama’s $1 billion re-election bid for the White House as his campaign team faces allegations they bought over 15 million ‘inactive’ Twitter fans in a Twitter-stuffing scheme.
The China Daily reports that, “Twitter followers are sold in two ways: ‘Targeted’ followers are harvested using software that seeks out Twitter users with similar interests and follows them, betting that many will return the favor. ‘Generated’ followers are from inactive accounts or created by spamming computers – often referred to as 'bots.'"
Status People tool disclosed that 70 percent of President Obama’s nearly 19 million followers are listed as “fake” or “inactive.”
