Twitter is a strange beast. You either see it as a cesspool of narcissism and self-promotion or a platform to share small observations and exchange quick hits of information. Whatever your stance on Twitter, there’s no denying that some people have mastered the 140 character joke. Here are a few of my favorite fake/prank accounts. Some of these contain salty language, just a heads up.
Nihilist Arby’s @nihilist_arbys
This account takes fast food chain Arby’s to a very dark place. Life is meaningless: eat at Arby’s.
Grease erodes your Arbys bag. It rips. curly fries litterr the sidewalk. kneel & greedily devour them, ignoring passersby. Arbys: no dignity

Modern Seinfeld @SeinfeldToday
Exactly what it says, an account that speculates what Seinfeld would be like today.
Jerry’s GF calls him bae. J:”How hard is it to say an extra b! Babe!” K:”No. It’s an acronym!” J:”How do you know that?” K:”How do you not?"
