Ed Henry Gets a Twitter Alias

FNC Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry has joined the awe-inspiring ranks of other media folk who have fake Twitter versions of themselves written by those who either want to ridicule them or be them in the weirdest of ways.

A little psycho, indeed.

Henry’s colleague, Sean Hannity, has the seemingly benevolent SHannitysHair, whose wife is called MrsHannitysHair. Few can forget FakeJimVandeHei, the fake for Politico‘s Executive Editor Jim VandeHei, recently disappeared without a trace. There’s also FakeHowardKurtz (for The Daily Beast‘s D.C. Bureau Chief Howard Kurtz). The posers may not hold power in real life. But online, they interact regularly with real Washington journalists.

Henry’s fake is the unique “edspocketsquare,” who surfaced this weekend. The new FNC correspondent doesn’t appear bothered. In fact, he RTed his alias, who wrote, “@edhenryTV and I go together like P B & J – or here in the vineyard ‘lobstah and buttah.’” Other messages include “I look AWESOME,” and “I’ll have you know I was purchased in VEGAS! So not everything that happens in Vegas stays there ;) .”

Eye roll. We hope the messages improve from there.
