Zille ditches fake bots

DA federal council chairperson Helen Zille seems determined to get rid of fake followers after discovering she has about 600 000 of them on Twitter. A commentator shared an audit of her followers which indicated that nearly 50% of her 1.4m followers were fake bots. ‘Their handlers must spend a huge amount of time looking for anything to twist and spin to manufacture outrage and get me trending,’ Zille tweeted. She said she believed many of the anonymous fake accounts were run by her political opponents.
