Megan Fox Joins Twitter Hours After “RIP” Death Hoax Trends

Megan Fox has joined Twitter, hours after false rumors of her death became a worldwide trending topic on the social networking site. The actress sent her first tweet late Thursday afternoon, not long after “RIP Megan Fox” trended basked on a hoax from the disgusting prank site Global Associated News. “I’m incredibly late to the party,” Fox wrote, “but I’m here nonetheless, so what now?”
On Thursday night, she announced the account on her official Facebook page, writing, “Against my better judgment, I have finally joined Twitter.” She continued, “Every possible version of my name is already in use so for now my Twitter handle is https://twitter.com/MeganFox516.” Fox later changed her username to just @MeganFox.
It’s unclear if Fox’s decision to join had anything to with the death hoax, but it’s a striking coincidence regardless. In June, Gossip Cop confirmed that a Twitter account supposedly belonging to Fox’s husband Brian Austin Green was, in fact, a fake.
