Audit Reveals CNN Social Media Followers Are ‘Mostly Fake’

An online audit tool that sniffs out fake social media followers has published details that prove CNN paid for 17 million dubious Twitter followers.

According to Twitter Audit, a tool that uses an algorithm to separate genuine account from fake ones, over 52% of CNN’s total audience is comprised of bots. reports: “We use these scores to determine whether any given user is real or fake,” the site states.

“Of course, this scoring method is not perfect but it is a good way to tell if someone with lots of followers is likely to have increased their follower count by inorganic, fraudulent, or dishonest means.”

Which brings us to CNN.

Twitter Audit’s analysis showed that of CNN’s 36 million Twitter followers, 17,023,448 are fake.


Given all the recent news surrounding CNN and its failing journalistic integrity, it isn’t surprising to know that almost half of the network’s followers are not real.

To compare, 85 percent of YourNewsWire’s followers are real.

CNN is having a bad week, to put it lightly. The network was forced to retract a story that claimed one of President Donald Trump’s associates was under investigation for ties to a Russian investment bank. Three staffers were also forced to resign as a result of that error.

Just a few days later, ultra-leftist CNN host Van Jones was caught on tape saying that the whole Russia story is a “nothing burger.” To make matters worse, a CNN producer was also caught on tape saying that the Trump/Russia narrative is “mostly bulls***.”

CNN, once a bastion of cable news, is in deep trouble.

It’s good to know the network isn’t reaching nearly as many real people as its Twitter account suggests.
