Did you hear the news that Rupert Murdoch is on Twitter and already causing an uproar? The infamous media mogul tweeted: “Maybe Brits have too many holidays for broke country,” to which his wife replied—also through the social network—”RUPERT!! Delete tweet!!”
But wait! Turns out that wasn’t his wife, but an impostor. The mysterious part is why Twitter bestowed “verified” status upon the fake account.
Murdoch’s presence on Twitter has been met with mixed reviews from Twitter users and sparked the inevitable parody account @RupertMurdochPR, who wrote, “The first 30 tweets from @RupertMurdoch are free, then the paywall goes up.”
