Vancouver Whitecaps: the soccer equivalent of "Fake News?"

Vancouver Whitecaps: the soccer equivalent of "Fake News?"

Some guy has taken the time to do an audit of all of the MLS teams and has determined that only 27% of Vancouver Whitecaps Twitter followers are real (not sure of all the metrics but I think it has to do with things like re-tweets etc). There has allegedly been some major fudging of their actual popularity.
