Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian among celebrities with the most ‘fake followers’ on social media

KIM and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are among a long list of celebrities who have the most “fake followers” on social media.

A recent study by TechRobot determined which celebrities had the most bots following their social media accounts.

A bot is a “software application that is programmed to do certain tasks,” according to CloudFare.

“They are automated, which means they run according to their instructions without a human user needing to manually start them up every time.

“Bots often imitate or replace a human user’s behavior, which is why it might be hard to determine if someone on social media is real or simply a bot.”

You’d be shocked at the millions of bots your favorite celebs have.
