Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga are the current leaders with Twitter. This means that they have more followers than any other man on the planet. But everything goes really well with the right things? Are they really as popular as they want us believed? How many real “fans” of their in Twitter?
The PR machine of the two Superstars is well oiled, so it is no surprise that a large part of their advertised “fans” in the short message service are just nominal members.
The page has StatusPeople.com determined in an analysis which celebrities have bought their followers only in part. Divides the result was in “fake”, “Inactive” and “good”.
“We take a sample of your follower data. More than 500 data sets depending on your popularity and we evaluate them based on a number of simple spam criteria” it says on the website. According to typical spammers or fake accounts such as term only a few followers but they have often followed by even hundreds of people.
Currently Lady Gaga is about 28.4 million followers, the trend is still upwards. But it is interesting that only 23% of them are useful, a good follower. 34% of their supposed fans are inactive and a whopping 43% fake.
It can be concluded that the singer and her marketing team does its job well.
When Justin Bieber sees the statistics SOMETHING better. Followers of 26.6 million 36% are good, really valuable. 33% of accounts are inactive and 31% clearly spam.
The situation is devastating singer Shakira. Only 12% of their Twitter fans are actually useful, 33% are inactive and an incredible 55% spam.
The question, what is the advantage of this is to show as many follower bodies. First of all, it looks good on paper, if you have more than twenty million followers. Then many stars earn money with paid tweets and the more people you can achieve in theory, the higher will certainly fail to pay. In addition, there is indeed something like a “tail comparison” between the celebrities…
Even during the election campaign we will see who wears the pants, as you will know immediately when comparing Barack Obama and his challenger, Mitt Romney. The currently most powerful man in the United States has significantly more fake followers.
