They are parody votes. Do you believe that there is still 4% that wants to leave with a deal?
I don't believe anything on twitter polls because anyone in the world can vote on them. Registered British voters living outside of the UK are excluded from YouGov polls and the likes, but on social media, anyone can vote. Also, many of the polls used as reference for the media have phenomenally small sample groups, some even under 2,000.

Little geek fact... in the UK, GE exit polls are based on a sample size as low as 20k. For the EU Referendum, there were no official exit polls at all as there were no previous measures to make the exercise worthwhile, e.g. no 'swing votes' of shifts in voting patterns to assess.
