The best 15 fake Twitter profiles

These Phweeters have us in stiches

Hoax Twitter profiles are very common. From the Dalai Lama and rapper Kayne West to the White House, there have been some excellent Phweeters (phony tweeters). We've sifted through hundreds of profiles to bring you the 15 best fake Twitter accounts. Follow (the genuine) PC Advisor tweet at Twitter.com/PCAdvisor.

Megan Fox

Name: the_megan_fox

Who she is: Actress and current male fantasy.

Why she's worth following: The author of this one seems to be living out his fantasy of Megan Fox as a bisexual sex addict. These tweets are often offensive, but almost always funny.

How often she tweets: January was a heavy tweeting month for the author, but we haven't seen anything since then. When 'she' starts tweeting again, make sure you have your notifications on Twitterfox turned off. Most definitely not suitable for work!

Favourite tweet: "You know what tastes great? Me."

Michael Bay

Name: michael_bay

Who he is: Director and producer. Credits include Transformers, Armageddon, The Island, and Bad Boys.

Why he's worth following: This is a classic fake Twitter profile. Recently, Twitter forced the author to make it clear he was not the real Michael Bay. Might have had something to do with the fact that this Michael Bay is obsessed with his own greatness and has a habit of saying, "F'yeah!" or "BOOM " in almost all his posts.

How often he tweets: 5-10 times per week.

Favourite tweet: "Endangered Species BBQ, my house, 1pm." "The fun's not done till the last one's gone." "@Becker - remember to bring extra panda this time. BOOM"

William Shatner

Name: WilliamShatner2

Who he is: Actor most famous for his role as Captain James T Kirk in Star Trek.

Why he's worth following: "The author of this profile recently surrendered WilliamShatner to the real deal, but still revels in characterising Shatner as an egomaniac at his new home.

How often he tweets: Every few months.

Favourite tweet: "...but you know, I'm not the jerk they say I am. In fact, I'm a completely different kind."

Abe Vigoda

Name: abevigoda

Who he is: Actor who's most famous as Bela Lugosi in The Godfather.

Why he's worth following: In 1982, Abe Vigoda's death was announced prematurely by People magazine (he is alive today and well into his 80s). Ever since then Vigoda's death has become a running joke. The author of this profile mentions Abe's living status in every tweet.

How often he tweets: Daily.

Favourite tweet: "According to my iPhone app I'm still alive."
