The Best Fictional Accounts on Twitter


There are many sound business reasons to use Twitter: connect with customers, monitor brand reputation, float ideas, learn new things, and keep up with trends. But there’s also keeping tabs on what God is up to. I mean it can’t hurt to be a follower. Right? And then you can always keep an eye on Satan (but I’m not sure being a follower is going to win you any points).

Creativity — and humor –abounds on Twitter. So while while you may be following social media mavens, journalists, analysts, companies, and your friends – why not add a few fictional characters to the list? It’s okay laugh now and then. This is by no means a comprehensive list of the amusing fake accounts on Twitter – so please feel free add your own favorite in our comments section.

  1. There is a character from Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon named Douglas MacArthur Shaftoe as @DMShaftoe.

    The book is a cult classic for anyone who is a combination of computer geek, hacker, cryptography fan, history buff, business start up, or military.

    @DMShaftoe quotes from the book and responds to any follow with: “you’ve shown tremendous adaptability.”

  2. Excellent. Thanks for addition.
