Fake AP Stylebook is run by The Bureau Chiefs, who count among their number journalists, writers, artists, graphic designers, a librarian, an English professor, and even a lawyer-turned-rapper. (Really.) They created Fake AP Stylebook (FAPS for short) to riff on a premise and make each other laugh, but oh hey what's this, a week later they had a book deal. There are 15 total contributors to FAPS, men and women from their late 20s to their early 40s, who originally came together as a Google Group of comic book bloggers. Their life story was later adapted into the hit HBO series Girls. Twitter was a natural fit for FAPS jokes: the format demands short and punchy work, and only demands a low level of commitment from writer and audience alike. Since its inception FAPS has never sponsored tweets, bought ads or engaged in any kind of conscious promotion whatsoever – the idea was to be funny and shut up when there was nothing to be said. It’s worked out pretty well for them so far. FAPS has published a book (foreword by Roger Ebert), swapped jokes with the likes of Richard Dreyfus, Steve Martin and Duran Duran, and written for Wired Magazine and Life.
