Conor McGregor set to lose almost half of his followers on Twitter as Elon Musk plans imminent crackdown on fake accounts.Conor McGregor, a star in the UFC, might lose close to half of his Twitter followers if Elon Musk follows through on his promise to delete fake accounts.
Since his legal dispute with Twitter before buying the company, Musk has been discussing the problem, and he now seems to be preparing a crackdown.In order to determine which UFC stars might be most negatively impacted if Musk does indeed crack down on fake Twitter accounts.
The audit claims that McGregor, the biggest name in mixed martial arts, stands to lose the most because an astounding 4.1 million of his 9.6 million followers are thought to be fake. This represents 42.3% of his total fan base.
With an estimated 3.9 million bogus followers, UFC legend Anderson Silva comes in second on the list. Due to the possibility of 38% of his 7.5 million followers being fake, “The Spider” also stands to lose a lot.The list also includes other UFC athletes including Khabib Nurmagomedov, Nate Diaz, Jon Jones, and Georges St-Pierre.
On the list of the three most likely phoney followers, Jones comes in at number three. 1.1 million of Bones’ 2.7 million followers are false, according to the audit.
The combined followings of Diaz, “GSP,” and Nurmagomedov are almost equal at 2.1 million. The Eagle, on the other hand, fared slightly better, with an estimated 36.6% of his followers being fake, as opposed to 38.3% for Diaz and 41.5% for St-Pierre.Israel Adesanya, who was recently deposed as middleweight champion, ranked eighth with an estimated 500,000 false followers. This represents a sizable 34.4% of his 1.4 million-strong fan base.
T.J. Dillashaw, Conor McGregor, ‘GSP,’ and Justin Gaethje are Cody Garbrandt’s closest competitors in terms of the proportion of fake followers he has.
Despite not ranking in the top 10 list of users with the most fake followers, Dillashaw and Gaethje are estimated to have a high percentage of fake followers.
