Apparently Morrissey Still Isn’t on Twitter

Remember the other day when the earth stopped moving for a few minutes because everyone was so excited that Morrissey decided to tweet something from his five-year-old Twitter account? Well, turns out that wasn’t Morrissey. And that “official” account? Not his either.

The moody singer took to True to You — the website that serves as his mouthpiece — today and denied that the two tweets that were farted out a couple days ago were not of his doing.

Under the simple headline of “statement,” the post reads in full:

16 May 2014

I would like to stress that I do not have either a Twitter or a Facebook account. I gather that a Twitter account has been opened in my name – as ‘It’s Morrissey’ – but it is NOT Morrissey. I do not know who has opened this recent Twitter account, but please be aware that it is bogus. That’s, of course, if you should remotely care.

Untwitterably yours,
Salt Lake City
15 May 2014.

Making this all the more baffling, a representative for Morrissey confirmed to Pitchfork that it was indeed the real Morrissey who tweeted the planet-stopping “Hello. Testing, 1, 2, 3. Planet Earth, are you there? One can only hope…” and the even more mind-blowing “Follow, follow, follow. Twitter is the perfect metaphor for…something. Dunno what.”

So it looks like you’ll just have to hang onto some other alt-rock legend‘s every typed word instead.

This, however, appears to the be real thing from Morrissey: a promo video for his upcoming album, which comes out on July 15.
