Morrissey: Twitter account is 'bogus'

Morrissey has denied having a Twitter account.

The 54-year-old singer was believed to have joined the micro-blogging website and posted his first tweet on Wednesday (14.05.14), but he has insisted the profile isn't him - despite being a verified account.

Writing on True-to-you.net: ''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''

The 'First Of The Gang To Die' star joined the social media site in June 2009 but only recently posted what was believed to be his first message.

The post read: ''Hello. Testing, 1, 2, 3. Planet Earth, are you there? One can only hope... (sic)''

The post has already been re-tweeted more than 18,000 times and it was followed by: ''Follow, follow, follow. Twitter is the perfect metaphor for...something. Dunno what. (sic)''

Three further tweets were posted on Thursday (15.05.14), including promotion for Morrissey's tour and merchandise.
