The claim was made by the ‘Secret RTÉ Producer’ Twitter account.

A spokeswoman for 2FM has denied the claim stating- “RTÉ does not pay for likes or followers. All followers to RTÉ’s extensive range of social channels are organic or recruited through legitimate content promotion, as per RTÉ’s social media guidelines.”

The ‘Secret RTÉ Producer’ account, which has 29,000 followers, is ran by an unidentified individual claiming to be “a long serving RTÉ producer.” They’ve been posting about the inner workings of RTÉ since September.
