Part of what I enjoy about writing for Page 2 is that there’s some room to have fun. When I was trying to come up with some sports and social media ideas for my @Page2 column, I thought a piece on parody Twitter accounts would be a great fit. There’s some really funny accounts out there, and I was really interested in talking to the people who run them about the inspiration to start such an account, coming up with the material to tweet and the reception they’ve gotten from the Twitterverse.

What was really interesting about this piece was that all the people that I talked with had completely different motivations and had their own individual approaches to running the accounts. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into the interviews, but I really enjoyed the chance to gain some unique social media insight from a handful of very creative and humorous people.
