    Today i checked just out of curiosity how many fake witter followers does Uberfacts has on SocialBakers and i was amazed what i saw. Only 18% of 8.9 million followers are real. That's 1.6million only. And they make 1k per day from Chacha with special agreement of 1 -3 cents per click. How much do you guys get per click?

    I think they calculate inactive accounts as fake accounts, which is not really the same.

    A lot of those "fake" followers are just old accounts or just inactive but a huge chunk of their followers is probably fake.

    I don't know about this service...but the way I do it is by getting all of a accounts followers and seeing when each of them tweeted last. If they havn't tweeted in the last couple of months then they are probably fake.

    Actually that's nothing. Justin Bieber has around 50% Fake Followers. It's normal in this game believe me.

    i've seen some text on mashable or techcrunch saying that its pretty accurate and comparing it with other twitter checkers and they had similar results. Also if you inspect Uberfacts followers you will see there are way more eggs than real persons.
    I just checked now 9gag and they had 50% btw why 9gag doesn't have verified badge o.o

    Just check biggest twitter profiles (like Justin Beiber, Katy Perry,...) and take a look at their last couple of hundreds followers. 90% of them are eggs.

    That's the reason I asked. No matter how you measure this, it's definitely a flawed metric. I for instance have a twitter account somewhere that I probably posted last in 2010 or soemthing...not fake....

    You can easily get 1 cent per click ads even more if you use an adsense website.
