Peña Nieto faking Twitter followers

Fascinating article from Milenio on PRI candidate Enrique Peña Nieto: While leading the pack with seemingly more than 400,000 followers on twitter, an investigation carried out by the newspaper on just a sample of those found that many of these are simply bots, or "ghost accounts" = fake followers.

Perhaps I am mistaking wishful thinking for analysis, but Peña Nieto's presidential project seems ever more shallow the more light shines on it.

Here's a graphic where the official number of followers are displayed. How many are fakes?
