Those Manchester United supporters on the #MoyesOut bandwagon were given a brief moment of celebration as a result of some cheeky trickery by a Twitter user.
One Twitter user created a fake account of the Daily Telegraph's Mark Ogden, while even photoshopping the blue check mark to show that the account had been verified by Twitter.
The biggest sign was the difference in followers: The real Ogden has over 66,000, while "0gden" has just over 2,000.
The fake account simply tweeted out: "Huge news for #mufc. Just been informed by sources close to the club that David Moyes has been sacked. Full report to follow."
Spot which of these Twitter accounts is fake... (Clue: David Moyes has not been sacked.) pic.twitter.com/dApUCTFYIR— Henry Mance (@henry_mance) March 27, 2014
For the record, no tweets from me about David Moyes today. The @M0gdenTelegraph account is fake. It's a 0, not an O.— Mark Ogden (@MOgdenTelegraph) March 27, 2014
The fake account was deleted shortly thereafter.
