Fake Twitter Account Stirring News

DETROIT (WWJ) -Michigan budget director John Nixon doesn’t have a Twitter account, but like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, he’s attracted a tweeter pretending to be him.

The FakeJohnNixon Twitter account started up last week and already has posted around 150 tweets.

The fake account notes that Nixon is Michigan’s highest-paid state employee and is consuming Michigan’s economy “one big gargantuan bite at a time.” It adds, “Just call me Budget Crunch.”

There’s also a FakeRickSnyder Twitter account on Gov. Rick Snyder with fewer posts.
