Deadspin provides us with the requisite weekly reminder that most Twitter accounts of famous people are fake, as this time the Cincinnati media - specifically a local TV news station - included some incredibly stupid quotes from a Twitter account thought to be that of Jonathan Broxton, former Royals closer.
So many fans of RedTeam saying nice things 2 ol' Broxy. Broxy not nervous no more. SinseeTown is great. Gonna throw the ball hard for you guys.
With syntax and wit like that, this is less a cause of the dubious, devious Internet ruining good journalism, and more about one seriously lazy-ass reporter. Despite new attention, the fake Broxton account was still deliver witticisms Wednesday morning:
Oh boy, Brox is in SinseeTown this mornin'. What time does Chilis open? Everybody said on the Twitter machine that Brox should eat at Chilis— Brox (@Brox4AllStarz) August 1, 2012
