Our 10 Favorite Tweets from the “Ian MacKaye” Twitter Account
For those of you who are waiting for Ian MacKaye to join Twitter, it's never going to happen. But at least you can follow ♥ ~*iAn_mAckaYe*~ ♥, a not quite official account re-imagining our revered punk statesman as a 13-year-old girl. Inside jokes for harDCore fans abound, along the lines of @JadedPunkHulk, only less angry and more preoccupied with uggos, bad hair, and pestering Henry Rollins for re-tweets (so far without luck). Here are Washington City Paper's 10 favorite tweets:

Asked for his reaction, the real Ian MacKaye declined to comment, saying "I didn't know a thing about this Twitter feed, which shouldn't be much of a surprise since I don't really pay any attention to Twitter and the like."
