What with the launch of Karl Lagerfeld's KARL line at Net-a-Porter today, it looks like Karl's publicity people finally got the fashion master a Twitter account. Sadly, however, even though Karl is known for his quotable bon mots, so far it looks like the feed is just marketing messages written by someone on one of his many staffs.

Call us when Karl starts tweeting; until then, we'll be tuned in to @FakeKarl.
