The FakeJohnNixon Twitter account started up last week and already has posted around 150 tweets.
The fake account notes that Nixon is Michigan's highest-paid state employee and is consuming Michigan's economy "one big gargantuan bite at a time." It adds, "Just call me Budget Crunch."
A spokesman for Nixon says the budget director "has a great sense of humor" and realizes the tweets aren't to be taken seriously.
There's also a FakeRickSnyder Twitter account on Gov. Rick Snyder with fewer posts.
Columbia College assistant journalism professor Dan Sinker started a fake, profanity-laced Twitter account during Emanuel's mayoral run that attracted 39,000 followers.
