Erick the Strange Angelic Man: 18
Someone already has an account called EvilEditor, someone, I might point out, who opened the account in 2009, tweeted once, and never used it again. However, I've noticed during my short time on Twitter that a lot of famous people use their name preceded by "The" or "The real," to distinguish themselves from fraud tweeters. And @TheEvilEditor was available.
So now there's a Twitter account @TheEvilEditor, but Evil Editor refuses to start tweeting until he has at least as many followers as Mrs. Varmighan. It's a matter of principle. So . . .
I've heard that if you don't have a Twitter account you can't click on the links in Mrs. V's tweets to see the cartoons. If that's true, it'll be true with Evil Editor as well. Opening a Twitter account requires you to give an email address so they can email you to confirm you're you and not someone else posing as you. But you don't have to give your real name or any other personal info, and you don't have to tweet if you'd rather not.
