About darth™

Caitlin Dewey blogged in the Washington Post Dec. 5, 2013: “Who is Darth? The short answer, for ye uninitiated, is that he or she is an anonymous master Photoshopper who can churn out memes on a moment’s notice — a sort of conduit of the Internet zeitgeist, if you will. The account dates back to 2007, but didn’t pick up steam until roughly the time of the 2012 elections. Since then, Darth has developed a few great shticks: mashing up movie posters with current events, for instance, and adding Christmas hats to his followers’ photos on request. Often, Darth’s humor is obtuse. The account descends, at least in part, from a much-debated cranny of the Internet called ‘weird Twitter,’ an eclectic, acquired-taste comedy subculture that delights in the nonsensical, satirical and surreal."
