So thereâs this guy, Fat_Mike, whoâs been pretending to be me on Tweeter for several months now. I didnât really pay attention cuz Iâm not on any of the other social networks and I figured what harm could it do? Well apparently a lot cuz now this douche has 6000 followers and heâs a total prick. I donât like someone going around making my bad name even worse. I get in enough trouble with the actual things I say. I donât need any more help, thanks. So Iâve decided to actually start twitting on my own. This is totally retarded, but I gotta fight fire withâ¦â¦.well, drugs and alcohol. Here I go into the wild world of no privacy and way too much information. It starts here with my first twat:
My Tweeter name is FatMike_of_NOFX and Iâm an alcoholic
