In June, 2010, KermlinRussia popped up on Twitter, making fun of Medvedev’s posts. Now that he’s gone, it has opened up to focus on a variety of authorities, including Putin himself, especially his overly macho antics. Just before he became president again, one post read, “In the Ryazan forest, where a fire was put out by the prime minister himself, three harvests of logs have already been gathered.” One of KermlinRussia’s authors says it simply: “Putin stopped being scary. He started to become silly.” It’s been four years and Putin has yet to do anything about KermlinRussia. The anonymity of Twitter makes it the perfect venue to mock him.
