Witches' Brew: Dumb Twit Case #680023: Toure's "Cousin"

Dumb Twit Case #680023: Toure's "Cousin"

A strange series of tweets from journalist Touré hit the innawebs over the weekend that left a lot of his followers with this look. Here's a sampling of the mysterious tweets:

Later, this tweet went out, blaming the whole thing on a "cousin" (because the "cousin" is always the one who's random, ride or die and down for whatever, right?):

So, Gawker did some "investigating" (and by investigation, I mean, they read the style of Touré's older tweets and compared them to the new, mysterious ones) and pointed out that these tweets looked a lot like his other thoughts. That prompted yet another apology tweet:

Since the random tweets went out, some genious blogger decided to open a hilarious Twitter account called @TouresCousin and that kicked off a Trending Topic hash tag craze blaming #tourescousin for just about everything wrong with the world:
MsDuende:   #TouresCousin does the programming for BET.

creolepimp:   I can hear #tourescousin IRL saying "Don't blame this on me" like Curtis told Deena in the lost Dreamgirls scene.
TheXDexperience:   #TouresCousin is is more relevant than @ToureX

OneOf_TheKids:   #tourescousin is the person behind @uncle_Rukus .

@TheNWord:   #tourescousin told on Tiger Woods.
BIG_SMALLS:   #Tourescousin told Bush that Saddam had wmd

And, trust me, it only gets better from there.  You can click here to keep up with the trending topic. 

Touré didn't punk out and delete the original tweets.  But still, I'll bet the real Touré will join me in my belief that Twitter is the debbil. 

But this is some funny isht though.
