Gaga’s Followers on Twitter Could be Fake
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2012 -- As of March last year, Lady Gaga has set a new record to be the first public figure to have nearly 20 million followers on Twitter. However, a recent report is leading critics to question the validity of this record since nearly 71% of her followers may be fake.
Essentially, there are three kinds of accounts on Twitter: inactive, fake, and good.
Rob Waller explains to the Guardian: “A fake account is setup to follow people or send out spam. They normally have no followers, but follow large numbers of people.
“An inactive account is one in which there has been no activity for a while. They could be real people, but we would describe them as consumers of information rather than sharers of information,”
“A good account is everything that remains.”
The New York Times elaborates on fake accounts by explaining that followers can be purchased online to boost a public figure or company’s popularity.
There is no evidence of Gaga purchasing any followers, however, Status People’s research showed that out of the singer’s last 100,000 followers, only 29% were considered to fall into the “good” category.
At present, the pop singer is working on her newest records, which will be released in early 2013. It is said that she is recording the record naked, because she believes her voice sounds better that way.
She is also currently on a world tour which includes 110 dates in total.
