Fake Cormac McCarthy Twitter Account Suspended

The strange saga of the fake Cormac McCarthy Twitter feed has ended. The Twitter feed that once excited writers around the Internet now reads: “Account suspended. The profile you are trying to view has been suspended.”

Oddly enough, the fake feed managed to fool more readers this week–including Twitter executive chairman Jack Dorsey (his tweet, later retracted, is embedded above).

Explore more tweets below–you can also read the fake Cormac McCarthy tweets archived here. We contacted Twitter for comment earlier this week, but we haven’t received a response.
