I was shocked by the headline: “71% Of President Barack Obama‘s Twitter Followers Are Fake.” By this measure, of the President’s nearly 19 million followers, 13.5 million are bogus. Irrespective of your political affiliation, one must admit that nearly three-fourths is an extremely high percentage of phony followers, causing some pundits to suggest that shenanigans may have been employed to bolster the President’s social status.

And The Most Authentic Twitter Personality Is…?

President Obama’s troubling Twitter follower score caused me to wonder to what degree other leading Twitter personalities’ followers were largely nonexistent. To this end, I used StatusPeople’s online tool, which estimates the percentage of followers which are: Fake, Inactive and Good.

The results were surprising. The arguably least-authentic personality on the list, Kim Kardashian, has the most legitimate followers of the Top 15 Tweeters, with 43% of her Twitter fans judged by StatusPeople to be real and active. Ms. Kardashian’s genuine percentage is more than double that of the lowest ranking member of the list, Shakira, with a paltry bona fide estimate of 21%. Even more disheartening, Ms. Authentic herself, Oprah Winfrey, per StatusPeople’s ranking, placed a mediocre tenth place, with only 26% of her followers extrapolated as real and active.

The following list is ranked from the highest to lowest percentage of real and active Twitter followers, not by each celebrity’s total followers.



StatusPeople notes that their results are inexact, as their algorithm samples a portion of a Tweeter’s followers and then extrapolates relative percentages across the entire data sample. In addition, pioneer Tweeters with longstanding Twitter accounts are more apt to have a higher percentage of inactive users. However, given that all of these are mature Twitter accounts, it is safe to assume that the results are accurate/inaccurate on a relative basis.
