The team at Status People have a new website called Fake Follower Check that finds out see followers on a Twitter account are actually real and which ones are actually fake.

The website gives you the opportunity to enter in the Twitter handle of any user to find out the percentage of fake accounts that user has following them. It also displays the percentage of fake accounts, inactive and good-standing users that follow the desired Twitter user.

When Facebook revealed earlier this month that out of its 955 million accounts, well over 83 million are fake, Complex saw an opportunity to capitalize on this by testing out how many well-know rappers had fake accounts following them. Stats for False Account Detectors Trending: Older & Mild
