A service between funny office fooling and serious quick check: The Status People Fake Follower Check finds out how many true followers, inactive or fake followers any twitter account has.
In fact the tool often is more than just a game. It helps to find out about a Twitterer or a twittering brand. Which Social Media Manager does not seriously want to know whether he communicates with real humans or whether they are mostly fake or inactive users.
That’s how the service works: “We take a sample of your follower data. Up to 500 records depending on how ‘popular’ you are and assess them against a number of simple spam criteria“ its Find Out More section reads. „On a very basic level spam accounts tend to have few or no followers and few or no tweets. But in contrast they tend to follow a lot of other accounts“.
