Started in November, the fake Michael Haneke has amassed over 17,800 followers, and drawn interest from actors like Ellen Page and Russell Crowe. Haneke -- who has won two Palme d'Or trophies from the Cannes Film Festival, a fact the fake Haneke loves to bring up as often as possible -- is aware of the account, but not necessarily a fan. "My students [at the Vienna Film Academy] said there was a weird Twitter account," Haneke, 70, told Los Angeles Times reporter Amy Kaufman at the Golden Globes (via a translator). "But I'm not that interested in that kind of thing. It's not for me."
It is for you, however -- unless you're name is "terruns malick." To celebrate the absurdity that is @Michael_Haneke, HuffPost Entertainment has compiled the account's 17 best tweets of 2013. Follow along and enjoy, lol.
