Lots of jokes have surfaced recently suggesting that most followers on Twitter are either fake, robots, spammers or some other entity which doesn't actually read anybody's tweets. Is this really true?

Real Twitter followers always will be rare. I can bet that 80% of followers did not even seen any of your tweets... That can be disappointing!

Thank you for sharing!

You never can tell that thing BizRock. Maybe the tweets doesn't trends because it is outdated topic or not so interesting and not intriguing. It is necessary to a Twitter user to tweet a useful or a statement that has sense so that many will see the next time the user will tweet again.

Is there a reliable basis of your equation? My new account in twitter has only 7 followers and all of them are my trusted friends. And do you think they are robots since the result is .7? Haha so funny.

Hi, Daniel!

That's true! I have almost 11k followers, but it's useless! (because I used automated softwares in the past). My number of "real" followers is probably around few hundred.

Ah, and on top of that Twitter marketing is so hard..

Best wishes,

Aleks

I have 3968 followers at the moment. I want to have more real followers, so I can overcome Twitters follow limit. I am following 4370 tweeps at the moment. What to do?

Hello Dan,

I can really tell you if this is true or not but, its possible because there is a saying that, in every lie, there must be an atom of truth. But, I always try to unfollow my inactive Twitter followers because, I believe in quantity and not quality. Thanks for sharing this with the bizsugar community.
