Best of Seattle: Twitter Feed

Stephanie Drury is not controversial Mars Hill Pastor Mark Driscoll, but on Twitter it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference. That’s because for the past five years, Drury, a 39-year-old mother of two, has taken to Twitter as @FakeDriscoll in what’s developed into a sharp exercise in social commentary and brutal satire. While many people tell jokes on Twitter, the 140-character barbs Drury aims at Driscoll via social media cut so close to the bone that people often get confused. “I was about to tell you to fuck off and eat dick until I saw it was from Fake Driscoll . . . then I just laughed,” reads a typical response to one of @FakeDriscoll’s tweets. Some might call what Drury does silly, but we call it brilliant. Someone’s gotta do it.
