Confessions of a Twitter dupe
So it turns out that sometimes something that seems too good to be true may, after all, be too good to be true. And that despite the fact that celebs -- from A-listers to utter has-beens -- have taken to Twitter, it isn't for everyone.
I write the above because it turns out that one Levi Johnston -- who you may remember as Bristol Palin's baby daddy -- is not on Twitter. One Tweeter who has been going by the handle of LeviJohnston05 for the past several weeks is apparently -- according to Johnston's agent -- not actually Levi Johnston.
Which, for me and Conan O'Brien (among others), is unfortunate since we both chose to pull tweets from the LeviJohnston05 and have a bit of fun with them. I included a couple of (what I thought were) Johnston's reflections in this week's Twits episode (they've since been excised).
Our policy has been to use Tweets from Twitter- or celebrity-verified accounts; this one fell through the cracks. Moving forward, I’ll be double-checking to make sure these accounts are legit. As for the perpetrator of the LeviJohnston05 fake, I'd love a few words (actually 140 characters) with you.
