Posted by Holly Whitfield | February 27th 2013 1925 0

You're nobody until somebody creates a fake Twitter account for you. Here are 15 fake versions of notable Memphians that you should follow:

1. @FantasyPastner

The enthusiastic, squeaky clean thoughts of "Josh McPastner", fake University of Memphis basketball coach.


2. @FantasyFuente1

U of M Football coach Justin Fuente is still relatively new in town, but not so new that he doesn't get a parody Twitter account. Meet @FantasyFuente1.

Fantasy Funete

3. @NotMatrisciano

The (not) thoughts of Tiger basketball life changer (not) Frank Matrisciano, including this one (referencing this story from the Xavier loss).


4. @FantasyShirley

Meet Fantasy Shirley. She's like the real University of Memphis president, only, completely made up.


5. @NotZBo

Rise and grint with fake Zach Randolph.


6. @TA_translations

Tony Allen's tweets are so amazing that they don't need to be parodided, but occasionally, they do need a translator. Enter, @TA_Translations:


7. @FakeRobertPera

Speaking of Tony Allen, some thoughts from Grizzlies owner Robert Pera's fake counterpart:


8. @FantasyTillery

The horribly misspelled thoughts of fake CA Grizzies reporter Ron Tillery.


9. @VampILoveMem

It's really weird when someone creates a fake you. Thankfully, my anonymous fake is actually pretty funny (he's also a bit foul mouthed, so you might not want to open this one at work.)

11. @FantasyLapides

The bio says it best: "The imitator of the originator of sports talk radio in Memphis." I love it because he never breaks character.

12. @CACommenter

Whoever runs this account has perfectly captured the typical CommercialAppeal.com commenter.

13. @MidtownMutt

The Twitter account for the most hipster, foul-mouthed, cat-hating dog in all of Midtown.

14. @FantasyRideout

This is (not) the Tigers' #1 Fan.

15. @FakeMongo

The surreal thoughts of Prince Mongo, Memphis' most surreal resident (and self-procliamed alien).

There are a few known fake accounts that I didn't include because they haven't been udated in a long time. If you know of any others, please leave them in the comments.

    Wish I could make the list but I live in St. Louis now…. My account is http://twitter.com/JPlovesCOTTON and someone created http://twitter.com/JPlovesWOOL! I figured I must have been doing really well when that happened!
