A New Twitter Star is Born

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 3, 2011 2:20PM


If there's one piece of fallout over the Dan Sinker/MayorEmanuel twitter epic, it's that anyone with access to Twitter and an ability to at least be conversational with it is trying to do the same thing.

Mere hours after the story of NU professor J. Michael Bailey's marital aid demonstration broke nationally, the "fuck saw" at the center of the story has a Twitter doppelganger. So far, the person or persons behind it is lifting wholesale from Sinker's formula of "(noun + verb) x expletive," without Sinker's gift for storytelling. Then again, the feed just started yesterday.

What we do know, based on the couple of replies they've sent us, is that they love using Twitter for iPhone, are based in Evanston, bleed Wildcat purple, and consider themselves "the biggest dildo at Northwestern" after Chet Haze.
