This App Lets You See How Many Fake People Are Following You On Twitter

There are over 500 million Twitter accounts. 

But in that huge number, you’ve probably noticed a bunch of so-called bots, or fake accounts that are controlled by an algorithm designed to spam us legitimate Twitter users.

If you’re curious about what kind of Twitter accounts are following you, check out this handy web app from Status People. It’ll analyse your followers and rate them as “fake”, “inactive”, or “good”.
