CNN delivers Fake News AND Fake Twitter Followers

CNN is fake on every level.

CNN has quite a large number of followers on twitter which gives the illusion that millions of Americans listen to what they put on the news. In reality an audit was performed on CNN’s twitter account and 17 million of those so called followers are actually fake followers.

A recent audit of cable news network CNN’s Twitter account shows that it has 17 MILLION fake followers. Well, I suppose if you are striving to be the top name in fake news, you should also have the most amount of fake Twitter followers, right?

One of the problems with Twitter is that it is stock full of fake accounts that are used to spam people with ads. And many accounts have a lot of these fake followers, especially high profile accounts like CNN’s.

Via Lucas Nolan of Breitbart News:

According to, nearly fifty percent of the followers on CNN’s verified Twitter account are fake.

Of CNN’s millions of followers on their verified Twitter account, over 17 million or 48 percent are fake, according to TwitterAudit.

“We use these scores to determine whether any given user is real or fake. Of course, this scoring method is not perfect but it is a good way to tell if someone with lots of followers is likely to have increased their follower count by inorganic, fraudulent, or dishonest means.”
