Best Local to Follow on Twitter Phoenix 2013 - @FakeJanBrewer
Parody Twitter accounts are easy to forget when there aren't that many jokes to be had at the expense of the person being parodied. Obviously, a parody of Governor Jan Brewer gives you plenty of material to work with, and nearly 20,000 tweets later, @FakeJanBrewer — also known as "Jan Brewer's Balls" — has proved that one true. Between tweeting out Brewer-related news stories, riffing on headlines, and responding to people on both sides of the aisle as a drunk, old, racist governor, it sometimes seems like being the fake Brewer is a full-time job. "Happy 'Throw Eggs at Mexicans' Day everyone! xo AZ Gov Jan Brewer," our fake governor tweets on Easter. When tornadoes blew through Oklahoma, our Twitter governor was there: "Did illegal immigrants bomb #Oklahoma again?" Sometimes it seems like having @FakeJanBrewer as governor wouldn't be so bad, because at least the craziness has a punch line.
