Did you flip your sh*t when Morrissey joined Twitter this week? So did I! For about 2 seconds, and then I remembered who Morrissey is, and then my internet persona belted a falsetto, “Faaaaaaaaake!”

It all started with a tweet.

OMG, you guys, it’s him! (*looks at follow-up tweets*) Yeah, that’s not him. Nope. Morrissey even released this very Morrissey statement.

I would like to stress that I do not have either a Twitter or a Facebook account. I gather that a Twitter account has been opened in my name – as ‘It’s Morrissey’ – but it is NOT Morrissey. I do not know who has opened this recent Twitter account, but please be aware that it is bogus. That’s, of course, if you should remotely care.

Yeesh. I imagine him in a cold bathtub staring at a guitar with only 4 strings on it when he wrote that.
