Twitter parody alter-egos are nothing new. In fact we follow more than a few of them. Some of them are better with one-liners than a lot of comedians.
In the race for State House Speaker Bobby Harrell's seat in Charleston County, a Twitter alter-ego war has broken out, featuring
@Johnsteinbuggar, a parody of Fair Tax advocate John Steinberger, who is waging a petition candidacy against Harrell, and @notbobbyharrell, a parody of Harrell.
If you're on Twitter, both of these are well worth following.
We have no idea who is who is behind these, but if we ever find out, we're gonna buy them a few beers.
