Seems the fake Adrian Fenty Twitterer, “FentyDC,” now has some competition. From the real Fenty – or, “MayorFenty.”

The D.C. mayor – assuming it really is him; his office has yet to confirm – has only one post so far, and it clearly wasn’t written by him. The account went live last month with this tweet:

The fake posts, about which CP wrote a few months ago, are way better:

So far, the fake Fenty has 236 followers. The real one has 23.
