Twitter can be a goldmine for good information. It can also be a goldmine bad information. And for some reason, there are people out there that spend their time giving out bad information behind their fake accounts.
Most know to ignore these accounts, but every now and then someone gets fooled. Last night was an every now and then.
Miami’s Fox affiliate WSVN brought its viewers some breaking news last night that Ray Allen had signed with the Miami Heat. WSVN credited Yahoo! Sports with the report. The only problem is Yahoo! never reported it. Instead a fake Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news.
Ray Allen is finalizing the final details of a 3 yr/11 Million Dollar withthe Miami Heat and will sign it tonight. Sources tell Y!

From there, WSVN ran with it.
