This Should Shut Glenn Beck Up
He is blasting Hillary Clinton for fake Twitter followers. Only, when the same process is used, Beck has more fake followers.
Glenn Beck has become obsessed with a recent story from The Daily Mail that reported that nearly half of the accounts that follow Hillary Clinton on Twitter are either fake or inactive and he repeatedly cited this story on his television program last night and on his radio show today as proof that Clinton is a total phony and a fraud…
The Daily Mail based its conclusion on the results generated by two websites — StatusPeople.com and TwitterAudit.com — which claim to be able to determine just how many “real” followers any given Twitter account actually has.
We have no way of determining how accurate either of these websites or their findings are, but simply in the interest of making Beck shut up about this stupid point, we decided to run his Twitter account through them and in both cases, the number of fake or inactive followers that he had far surpassed Clinton.
