Are Your Twitter Followers Real?

Here’s a free tool that let’s you determine if your Twitter followers are real people: fakefollowers.

The tool detects fake or “empty” followers using the following criteria:

  • The Following / Followers ratio is less than 50 Following / 1 Follower
  • They repeat spam phrases like “diet,” “make money,” and “work from home”
  • Tweets are repeated more than three times
  • More than 90% of the account´s tweets are retweets
  • More than 90% of tweets are links and the profile has a following: followers ratio of 7 : 1 or more. This means, for example, that the profile is following 7 others while only being followed by 1.
  • The account has never tweeted

The tool can be used up to 10 times a day to check out the score of any Twitter account. The tool analyzes up to 2,000 followers per account.
