Dawkins’ Fake Followers

I noticed from Dawkins twitter feed that he has over 800,000 followers. Now, knowing Dawkins, once he hits 1 million followers, he will trumpet this to the world. One million people following Tweety Dawks every little tweet. It will just prove just how popular the New Atheist movement has become and further signal the demise of religion. Right?

Well, when that happens, here is something to keep in mind.

When you search RichardDawkins using the Twitter analytics application Status People, it turns out 25% are fake and 32% of the accounts are not active.

So when Dawkins shouts that he has one million followers several months from now, someone should let him know that he still has about 600,000 to go.
