World: New Twitter boss Elon Musk has gained more than 24.6 million followers after he first announced to acquisition the platform in April for $44 billion (AED161m).

Musk had around 89 million followers in April after the first Twitter deal announcement. However, his follower count had reached 115 million and grew at a phenomenal rate as he continues to tweet 24/7 since buying Twitter.

Barack Obama, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Cristiano Ronaldo currently top the list, with over 100 million followers each on the micro-blogging platform.

Katy Perry has 108.8 million followers while Rihanna has 107 million followers on Twitter.

Reports say that Musk’s follower count has been significantly boosted by fake accounts.

According to the audience research tool SparkToro, Musk has nearly 7 per cent more fake followers than the median 41 per cent that accounts with similar-sized followers have.

Musk, who changed his profile to ‘Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator’, wants to purge inactive accounts that have not posted anything for a period of over a year.
