So there I was, fiddling around with some things, working the social media, when it occurred to me that it had been a minute since I had drilled down a bit on the Twitter to make sure everything was as kosher as possible.
Excellent. Just as I had hoped. The last time I checked, which was around 25,000 followers, I was also at 0%, and that was after cleaning out a lot of chum, inactive followers, and egg people. While I was at it, I decided to check up on my inexplicable presidential social media rival, former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee, who was about 12,000 back during the last check. 22,400+ followers. Hmmm, Chafee seemed to be gathering steam on social media, which was weird since he sure as hell isn't gathering steam anywhere else in his campaign.
That explains it. 4,400 or so fake followers. That's a little disappointing. I mean, President Obama only has a 7% fake score, so what the hell, Lincoln? I know things look bleak as fuck, especially since the debate, but dock the $10 those followers cost out of whichever intern's pay that though it was a good idea. If you have any interns, that is.
Then again, Chafee might as well go after the #FakeTwitter vote, 'cause he sure as hell isn't having much luck with the real life voting populace.
