Hundreds of Fake Twitter Accounts Really, Really Like Donald Trump

trumpHundreds of seemingly fake Twitter accounts all have identical feelings about Donald Trump, and all tried to get people to file FCC complaints against Ted Cruz.

Veteran Republican digital strategist Patrick Ruffini went on a tweetstorm detailing his findings about the 456 accounts, all of which have zero followers and tweet the same messages.

Coincidentally, these fake Twitter accounts also seem to love boosting Donald Trump social media director Dan Scavino.

Mediaite reported back in February that a series of Twitter accounts with Hispanic names all tweeted suspiciously identical praise of Trump following his Nevada caucus win. Trump also has a history of purchasing fake supporters for his campaign speeches.
