    Can We Stop With The Parody Twitter Accounts

    First there is that lame fake Steele Jantz account that tries so hard to be funny and isn't even close, now there is a fake Edwin Arceo account that's even stupider... STOP IT, you aren't funny!

    Going to need a link to the fake Edwin Arceo twitter to determine the level of funny.

    Re: Can We Stop With The Parady Twitter Accounts

    I find myself laughing every so often at Fake Steele Jantz, but its not near as good as Fake Dan Beebe.

    The good thing is Twitter is simple. If you don't like it don't follow it. Those accounts would slowly die off if no one followed them or interacted with them.

    I'm well aware of how Twitter works, but these accounts pop up and if even one person takes it serious, it gives the program a bad look... I don't follow either account, but see them retweeted and it's just embarassing.

    I also agree, that the fake Dan Beebe is one of the few parody accounts that gets it right.

    Anyone who takes them seriously needs to stay of the internet and should be embarrassed, IMO.

    The good fake accounts are well worth the cost of putting up with the crappy ones.

    Fake Bill Walton is hilarious.

    Most of them are bad but I must admit I LOLed when my buddy showed me this tweet an hour before the Tulsa game.

    Not Steele Jantz ‏@SteeleJantz
    Anyone know when kickoff is? Follow up question, can someone come pick me up from Kansas City real quick?

    Just because it's on the internet doesn't mean you can do whatever you want without consequences.


    I don't follow any of these because they suck, and based on some of the things I've had the misfortune of reading, I wish they didn't exist.
