Twitter has become the central hub for celebrities, politicians and die-hard fans around the world to talk about trending topics and share Instagram pictures with all of their followers. Most celebrities, politicians and fan accounts are based upon their lives while the rest are based on making fun of their lives.
These accounts are known as parody accounts in which they may have a certain persons name and may have a description fitting that person but are in fact in imposter acting as that person. Some examples of these accounts are, @ChuckDamnNorris, @Lord_Voldamort7, @ObamaTranslated and @MittR0mney.
The imposters of these parody accounts communicate as if they were the celebrity or politician, tweeting about themselves or other well-known figures.
For those Twitter fans who like to follow the current Presidential nominees, they may chose from a variety of parody accounts that have a variety of tweets from the fake nominees.
The account @ObamaTranslated is intended to take the words of President Barack Obama and translate them into his true feelings. This account is run by two comedians that host the show “Obama Translated” on Comedy Central.
The comedians post tweets like, “OBAMA: Thank you and goodnight! TRANS: YALL UNDECIDED NOW! YA MIND’S MADE UP? THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT!”
The Dark Lord, @Lord_Voldemort7, tweeted, “#ReasonsWhyWeDontGetAlong. You’re a muggle”.
The Dark Lord would have been successful in defeating Harry Potter if he had as many death eaters as he does twitter followers. Lord Voldamort’s current count of Twitter followers is 2,287,375.
Mean girl Regina George under the name @RelatableQuote, keeps her followers entertained as she retweets quotes from her role in “Mean Girls” and makes comments that relate to her personality.
“So Karen dated Channing Tatum in Dear John & then Regina dated him in The Vow. Isn’t that against the rules of feminism?” @RelatableQuote said.
There were no less than three “official” Rachel McAdams accounts on Twitter, none verified. @RachelMcAdams33, if not the Mean Girls star, does a good enough job impression to garner 23,000 followers, all unverified.
There are a variety of parody Twitter accounts that are available to follow, from reality starts to A list celebrities there is a fake Twitter account for them.
These accounts are clearly indicated in their description that they are a parody of the real person or character. The comments made are only the view of the imposter writing them and in no way reflect the views of real person.
