Justin Sun, founder of Tron is once again under fire for buying followers on Twitter. Sun has a total of more than 1.5 million followers with the addition of 5k followers daily.
Some crypto enthusiasts have speculated that Sun may be purchasing followers. From recent data from Twitter, it was revealed that the founder’s followers have grown inorganically.
As Sun announced the launch of Tron’s virtual machine on Twitter, Popular crypto analyst, Josh Rager replied his tweet with proof that the CEO was indeed purchasing followers daily. Rager suggested that 5,000 to 6,000 followers were added to Sun’s account on a daily basis.
Looks like you're still buying 5,000 to 6,000 followers per day
My favorite stat is how you went from losing net-negative followers per month to gaining 5k followers daily like clock work in late 2018
You're such a meme

Also, the tweet stated that Sun may have been buying followers since 2018. Rager gathered this information from the stats which reflected an initial reduction in Tron’s Twitter following a year ago. After a while, the followers pushed back up.
Twitter stats showed that Sun did see an increase in followers on a daily basis for 14 days. However, others believe that this growth may be linked to the DApp growth.
