Owen Jones is Followed By the One Percent

owen jones 1%

With 292,000 followers, ageing pundit Owen Jones appears to be a big deal on Twitter. But is all it seems for the authentic voice of the common man?

Techno Guido used the Status People’s Fakers App, to analyse Jones’ followers and the results were eyebrow raising to say the least. A full 96% of Owen’s followers were judged to be fake, 3% were inactive while only a paltry 1% were “good.” While it’s perfectly normal to have some fake followers, Owen’s numbers are so high that someone must be buying him robot followers.

For comparison we’ve posted the details of some other equally famous and influential Twitterers.

Quote of the Day

Dr Alexander Kogan, the app developer who originally harvested the Facebook data, said…

“I think what Cambridge Analytica has tried to sell is magic and made claims this is incredibly accurate and it tells you everything there is to tell about you. But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
