Twitter is amazeballz because it's a painless way to instantly share pictures and news with millions around the world, but folks should DEFINITELY think twice before believing every tweet they read!!
Especially when the breaking "news" concerns the Prince of Social Media, Justin Bieber, and his seXXXuality!
"Breaking! Exclusive: Justin Bieber to E!online 'I'm a gay'"
Yeah… As much as we would love for Justin to come over and take a few pitches for our team, that just ain't true!!
E!'s accounts were hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army — this was all a hoax.
Insta-depressed tweens across several continents didn't know that, though!!
We wonder how many millions threw Boyfriend on repeat and cried sad, salty, but-he-was-supposed-to-marry-ME tears into the teddy bear their far-inferior-to-The-Biebs crush won them at last year's Fall Carnival!!
The same hackers also crashed stock markets by untruthfully announcing the White House's destruction through the Twitter accounts of legit news agencies!!
Twitter mercifully suspended @eonline's compromised account immediately after the hoax was noted.
