Newsweek attempts to slam Trump for fake Twitter followers, not nearly smart enough to pull it off

The only problem with using that measuring tool is that it can be used by others to prove the same point – about someone else’s Twitter following.

MMA fighter Nik Lentz did just that.


But the Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran was not done.

No word back from Newsweek on those numbers but Lentz definitely got Twitter users talking.
