Smiths Fans Of The World Unite As Morrissey Finally Tweets

UPDATE (May 19th): The profile is bogus, says Morrissey himself.

Steven Patrick Morrissey, commonly known to millions of Smiths fans around the world simply by his last name, Morrissey, sent his first two tweets yesterday, and Twitter exploded.

Currently, Morrissey only follows one other profile on Twitter – Universal Music’s Harvest Records, the studio producing the new album – and while more than 180,000 people have started following Morrissey, including such luminaries as Russell Brand, Ricky Gervais, Frankie Boyle and David Walliams, that tally doesn’t include former Smiths bandmate Johnny Marr. And probably never will.
