#TwitterFail On California's Prop 8 Being Overturned

The California Supreme Court has just overturned Proposition 8 allowing gays to marry once again!

Sound like a major story? Well it was on Twitter but unfortunately it has no shred of truth to it as apparently someone, accidentally or not, sent a tweet out with a link to an LA Times story proclaiming the overturning of Prop 8 and it has been spreading like wildfire ever since. Unfortunately the article was dated May 16th, 2008!

Oops...

UPDATE: Guess what, apparently it was the LA Times themselves who were responsible for the errant Tweet. Double Oops...
