Ever since the folks at StatusPeople came up with this new tool of theirs which reported that more than 70% of Barack Obama’s 19 million followers are fake, the Twitter world is abuzz and everyone is busy analyzing who has the most fake followers.
So I sat down and decided to analyze some of the biggest Indian brands on Twitter from different niches, and I must say it threw up some results that were quite unexpected.
@Flipkart – 28,258 Followers
@TataDocomo – 49,352 Followers
@KingfisherWorld – 23,162 Followers
@ICICIBank_Care – 5982 Followers
@IntelIndia – 4946 Followers
@PMOIndia – 197,098 Followers
@IPL – 346,614 Followers
@NDTV -584,561 Followers
@MTVIndia – 587,201 Followers
@ClubMahindra – 22,345 Followers
However, I want to make it clear here that the tool itself doesn’t claim to be 100% accurate. Hence, the data presented above is just for indicative purposes.
