For the second time in a week, a rumor on Twitter quickly spread, only to be eventually proved false.
The rumor was initially to reported to have been started with a "tweet" from BNO news, which attributed the news to a Florida radio station report. But the radio station's program manager denied that the report came from them.
Last Friday, a rumor that California's Proposition 8 had been overturned by the state supreme court also caught fire, fueled by a gale of tweets.
The report was actually a Los Angeles Times story from last year regarding the court's decision to allow same-sex marriage.
Not that the Los Angeles Times itself wasn't eventually suckered into reporting the false rumor -- on Twitter, naturally.
Jackson West suggests people stick to credible fake news sources like The Onion and The Daily Show.
