After a direct message from the proverbial gift horse, I tweeted a sad thing:

I hope at least some of you have noticed my restraint in not saying Fuck you, Tracy.
You said it in your head. I heard it.
Shall we play a new game?
I know! I know!
THE REAL COOPER ESTEBAN.
I heard there is no real Cooper Esteban.
Does Andrew’s post mean Twitter is shutting cwalken down? I don’t know nothin’ ’bout Twitter.
oh shit. I hope all the twits are stored somewhere
Cooper, they shut it down and reopened it, changed the name, and then shut it down again. Trelvix messaged me and told me what we both already knew.
Also, we are working on getting those twits, Hobson.
I’m pretty sure the real Cooper Esteban is some guy named Brian or Bryan or something.
By the way, just who the hell is this Trelvix feller?
Noooooooooo! Talk about getting my hopes up.
Andrew, it was a beautiful, funny and weird thing that’s beyond description. Thanks for doing it – it was amazing to watch it grow/gain traction, especially when I was aware of what was really going on.
Again, profound thanks.
Cindy, you mean Bert?
Now Trelvix. Pretty sure they were some early eighties Franco-Prussian band. Or maybe Belgian. Like Plastic Bertrand.
Shoot, walt, I was just an unofficial mouthpiece for the author of those tweets, but I am certainly glad you enjoyed the whole fiasco.
Perhaps an external to twitter (here perhaps?) and dedicated page that gets microblogged to by a banished cwalken could allow his memes to live on through retwitcarnation (RTc)…
RTc cwalken (blah, blah, blah, etc.)
kinda like a virtual kid in the classroom, in the timeout chair, that still makes everyone laugh
I saw Jesus on a piece of toast. That was God’s fault, of course. Probably the bread’s idea though.
I just got a note from one of you giving me credit for all of this.
I was actually flattered for a second until I realized we were still talking about Twitter!
You kids and your gizmos.
I feel like metaphors may be
no, no, in the active voice!
I think you’re mixing your metaphors there.
Hell’s bells, a fellow would feel kinda puffed up to learn that someone thought he was responsible for all those clusterflock brilliancies that I posted.
So it had to be a bringdown to realize it was Twitter they were talking about.
But don’t be discouraged! You’re on the right track!
Good luck next time!
I am NOT the real Cooper Esteban.
Complete instant mashed potatoes.
From twitter’s Steve Buscemi:
Steve_Buscemi spoke with Christopher Walken regarding his fake Twitter. Trying to convince him to start a real one…he fears it won’t be as good.
Christopher Walken fears he wouldn’t be as good… as himself. well we simply must at least have a fake fake cwalken
