Twitter account suspended

"Sorry, the account you were headed to has been suspended due to strange activity." That is what you get when trying to visit twitter.com/tomwaits. 

Not that anyone ever believed it was actually Waits tweeting. Or maybe Nick Cave did: "Just found out @tomwaits is a fake. Confused. Upset. I've been meeting him for coffee for months!" is his reaction. But then again, he's fake as well.

It seems somebody did think that tom waits was tweeting all the time. See this article in one of Spain's top newpapers

You have to be really ignorant in order to think that Tom Waits is telling the world what the heck he is doing all the time. Journalists always find a new way to show their incompetence. (The article is about famous people who uses internet to get in touch with the fans (lol))

I left a comment in this article but they didn't publish it.

Bye!
