They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but when it comes to Twitter it’s downright hilarious, witty and more often than not nasty leaving us gagging. A blend of current events, social causes, campaigns, satire, pop culture or a stream of perception, here’s a list of parody accounts that will leave you in splits.
Prey to parody, politicians to celebrities and sportsmen, Twitter is mocking them all and it’s safe to say that these parody accounts are way better than the original ones.

The throne bearer of the controversial and oh-so-loud News Hour, Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami has his own parody account which speaks about everything that ‘The nation wants to know’. Having 47.8k followers, this account has a lot of humor to share.
