    Well, think of all the fundamentalist, right wing, anti-gay christian politicians who've turned out to be :aero:

    Not that crazy IMO.

    Contents of that Floyd tweet:

    That @LennayKay account isn't what you think it is

    Let's review how Twitter works, shall we?

    FACEBOOK
    TWITTER

    So there's this account, with this tweet:




    That's one of the accounts used by Lennay Kekua, the hoax girlfriend of Manti Te'o and the weirdest damn story ever. And yes, there are old retweets from Manti Te'o on that timeline -- two of the three tweets are of the variety.
    [​IMG]
    And that account has sure fooled a lot of people. Fooled because it's not her. Or whoever was pretending to be her. Or ... you know what, who knows who was running that account? First, we have this. It's a neat tool that tells you when Twitter accounts were created.
    [​IMG]
    The account was created today. Which means it was deactivated, released back into the wild, and then picked back up ... after Deadspin broke its story. Because this is Twitter and trolling is the name of the game.
    Now, how did those old Manti Te'o tweets get there? Simply, a plain retweet shows the original timestamp. It's a great way to fake an account, actually (don't do this ever).
    And don't fall for the account that follows Manti Te'o, Rey Maualuga, Troy Polamalu and Reagan Maui'a and was created in the wake of the bombshell. If we've learned anything, it's to be skeptical of, well ... everything.

    EVERYONE knows that Catholics don't truly become Catholic until they have a kid. Then they pretend to be Catholic until the kid is out of the house.

    Don't really buy that he is such a loser that he would fall for some chick over the internet that he's never met in person. I had an ex-gf and a couple friends that went to Punahou and there was some chatter back then that Manti actually fucked around with some decent bitches. For that reason I find it far more likely that he's in on the hoax or he's gay.

    This kind of supports Deadspins theory that Teo was in on it, he's the one who brought Tuiasasopo out to the USC game and it makes it appear like He was the only one behind Lannay. Where are the army of people behind Lannay that Teo and others supposedly talked to on the phone for years? Why is it Roniah is the only guy that ever makes contact with everyone if there are other people involved?
