A chrome extension that block fake twitter followers
Twitter Block is using a script built by Clayton Lambert. When the script is called, it looks for every follower's picture, banner, description and link. Every follower gets a score according to those criterias. If the score is above a certain threshold, the follower will be blocked. This script was packaged into a chrome extension for ease of use.
Here are the criterias to determine if an account is fake. A combination of those criterias will flag an account as fake.
hunter.io wrote a great blog post on how to sideload extensions. The same steps apply to this extension.
