Alabama Confirms Trent Richardson Twitter Account a Fake

There was a lot of chatter on Saturday about draft prospect Trent Richardson tweeting about wanting to come and play for the Cleveland Browns in 2012.

One of the tweets had a picture of a Browns hat, and another stated:

Well, Browns fans, sorry to say in the end it turns out that the account was a fake.

“It is not real,” Josh Maxson, an associate communications director for the University of Alabama’s athletic department, wrote in an e-mail to the Akron Beacon Journal. “Trent does not have a Twitter [account] and isn’t planning on getting one.”

A lot of people brought the fact it was a real account, as it had over 15,000 followers. It once again goes to show you have to be careful when it comes to believing things you read on twitter.
