♪♫ Mick Jagger is the latest victim of the Twitter death hoax
Mick Jagger has been declared momentarily dead by the Twitter masses. "RIP Mick Jagger" became a worldwide trending topic on Wednesday, despite all signs pointing to a very much alive man. It seems the trend started after Jagger's appearance at the Grammys. Peter Rosenberg, a radio disc jokey, wrote:
wait i thought this was for actual dead people...not the living dead RIP Mick Jagger ...
As news is wont to do in the giant game of Telephone played on Twitter, the joke quickly became a possible news item. However, just yesterday Mick Jagger's new Web site launched and his Facebook and his Twitter feed sent out some Grammy clips.
Mick Jagger joins an illustrious group of celebrities killed by Twitter, including Justin Bieber, Aretha Franklin and Charlie Sheen.
Here's the man very much alive at the Grammys on Sunday:
