That's more fake followers than other presidential political figures.
As of Tuesday evening, Trump had 31 million followers on Twitter and while that seems like nothing to report home about for one of the most famous people on the planet, his following has jumped by five million in the last couple of days. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed that the @txmockingjay tweet contained unsupported information.
The website, which says it has been "exposing Twitter fraud since 2012", explains its methodology, which it admits is not an exact science.

Harping on the importance of waste management, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday announced launch a "massive movement" for waste collection across 4,000 cities of the country from June 5.
The tweeter-in-chief has picked up roughly 3 million twitter followers in recent days, most of which appear to be recently created twitter bots.
"I couldn't be sure as I was skimming a lot of tweets so I don't remember the original poster", they said. Is he even aware of his popularity with bot accounts? The #resistance - the cohort of Twitter users all racing to be the first smug reply to any of Trump's tweets - is keeping a close eye on the situation.
The President's tweets certainly shouldn't be the big news this morning, not after a auto bomb tore through the diplomatic quarter of the Afghan capital this morning, killing at least 80. A survey of numerous new Trump followers shows that many are also following celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Ellen DeGeneres, Barack Obama, Jimmy Fallon, and LeBron James, and brands like ESPN and CNN - the same types of popular accounts that are regularly suggested to all new users during Twitter's initial onboarding process. We'll probably never know, but there seems to be nothing more important to Trump than how his fame relates to that of other public figures, and it can't sit well with the president that there are now 31 accounts with more followers than his. Maybe you run a business that sells inflated follower counts, so you create a bunch of bots and direct them to follow your paying customers. The comedian Joe Mande now has a healthy 1.01 million followers, but his bio contains a caveat: "twitter is trash, facebook's the devil, i bought a million followers for like $400 none of this shit matters antarctica is melting".
