Twitter page “Faith and Value Voters for Hillary Clinton 2016” — the verified @Faith4Hillary account — was caught last week after having allegedly purchased 12,000 fake followers, roughly 42 percent of its total following.

The news was reported by Townhall Sunday and has also been verified by a number of websites that can determine the amount of fake, inactive and good followers of any social media user.

Clinton’s faith-based Twitter handle  obtained 42 percent of her followers through “inorganic, fraudulent or dishonest means,” according to Twitter Audit. StatusPeople calculated that a mere 18 percent of followers were healthy, genuine followers.

As of Friday, Clinton’s page stood at 42,000 followers, with an alleged 12,000 fakes.

By Sunday evening, she was coincidentally missing 12,000 followers. PR move? We would imagine so.

In the day since the story broke, Clinton has gained 3,000 new followers, possibly from the publicity.

The crisis might have thrown Clinton’s faith and values website into a frenzy because the website is currently down for maintenance purposes as of Monday evening.
