I've heard that dril on Twitter is actually Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka from SA, can anyone confirm/deny?


It's not Lowtax, but some of the most prevalent "weird twitter" accounts, like @fart and @dril established their brand of humor at SA: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/nzg4yw/fuck-you-and-die-a...

Fart is still around on SA related places

dril and many other Weird Twitter posters are migrants from the FYAD subforum on Something Awful, which had similarly absurdist memes.

Nah, Lowtax was banned from twitter and created another account to whine about it, something he would be banned quickly for in his own forum.

Lowtax also got shadowbanned on Youtube apparently. He had been making all of these videos that would basically never show up in search results. There is something to be said for sticking to your own forum I guess.

If you get banned from SA you just have to rebuy your account.

Permabans are not common.

I can confirm that I want this to be true, at the least.

dril was doxed a couple of years ago. You can google around for his real name, which is not Richard Kyanka.

Wrong. dril is funny.
