Those twitter users are not FAKE! They are part of the 4.5 million people TOTUS has put back to work. Just ask Stephanie Cutter.

Well played 'Formerly Bill'.

He's the "social media president," having been the first one in the modern era to take full advantage of the ways the Internet can connect politicians to people. But a new study reveals that 70% of President Obama's 19 million twitter followers are completely fake.

President Obama's Twitter account has 18.8 million followers -- but more than half of them really don't exist, according to reports.

A new Web tool has determined that 70% of Obama's crowd includes "fake followers," The New York Times reports in a story about how Twitter followers can be purchased.
