60 per cent of PM Narendra Modi's Twitter followers are fake: Twiplomacy
So at least for India it will still take few years before twitter becomes official channel for Govt orders
They are fake followers made by supporters themselves to show support to the party i feel. Not paid followers by Modi.
How can they say they are fake? They just cant guess it randomly or check every profile right? There might be people who just create account and leave it (I know many people like them) or Just create account to follow someone but never tweets or something or maybe people who created just in flow during election time and forgot to use it again.

I'm not saying everyone is genuine there will be fake accounts too but 60%? really?

People who like him will follow him to know what he is doing and people who hate him will also follow to criticize him.There might be 20-30% fake people but not 60%.

Person who became a president when most of the country is against him is having just 37%.

so according to them out of 41000000 followers - 60% (24600000) = 16400000 followers are real. I think they need to remember he is PM of a country which has 132.42 crores population as of 2016 and recently Internet has become sooo cheap (Thanks to jio)
