    These phony accounts are called follower-bots and are created to act as if they are a real person ? spouting off tweets, following other users, and retweeting content. You?ve probably seen the more obvious follower-bots follow you on Twitter, but the people creating them are getting more and more advanced. These days, spotting a follower-bot can be nearly impossible. They even steal information from real accounts and duplicate it numerous times over to make them look real.
