A Twitter account initial thought to be Morrissey's has been deleted by his record label one day after he dismissed the profile as ''bogus'' following its first tweet earlier this week.
Morrissey's 'fake' Twitter account has been shut down by his record label.
Fans were delighted when the 'First of the Gang to Die' singer appeared to have joined the micro-blogging website on Wednesday (14.05.14) but Harvest Records have suggested the profile wasn't official - despite being verified on the website - as they ''bid farewell'' to it already.
Writing on their own account, they said: ''We've taken over @itsmorrissey to protect it from interlopers. Alas, it's already time to bid farewell to the account.''
The profile - which has now been deleted - was set up in 2009, while the 54-year-old star was believed to have posted his first tweet earlier week.
However, before the label seized control of it, he had insisted he wasn't wasn't on Twitter, even though it was one of the site's verified accounts - a system used to let fans know they are following an authentic celebrity's feed.
In a statement, he wrote: ''I would like to stress that I do not have either a Twitter or a Facebook account.
''I gather that a Twitter account has been opened in my name - as 'It's Morrissey' - but it is NOT Morrissey. I do not know who has opened this recent Twitter account, but please be aware that it is bogus.
''That's, of course, if you should remotely care. Untwitterably yours, MORRISSEY''
