Zaph - Mine must be fake, since I go on Twitter once a year at most.
Your account would fall under "inactive".
Twitter recently removed known fake accounts and known spammers. Our example of a "fake" in the blog is like an account created by a service that you would buy follows from. They likely plan on using it at some point.
We clearly state that having fake followers does not mean the athlete did anything. If you give me your twitter account I can add 3000 follows in 24 hours with no access to your account other than your account name.
Please read the blog it explains things.
Why is it important to know? In the real celebrity world people get paid to tweet. I have secured payment for my clients solely based on their social media reach. Advertisers are no longer saying social media does not work, they are saying the actual reach vs followers is skewed.
If you paid Roy to tweet to his 500,000+ followers only 8% will likely see it.
Facebook knows of this problem and they put the responsibility on the poster. If you want to reach more of the "friends" you have listed you have to pay to promote the post. The actual reach on a FB post today is less than 10% of your friends.
