- — Wendi Deng Murdoch (@Wendi_Deng)Tue, Jan 03 2012 14:16:44Hello Twitter. As News International has finally come to their senses, it's time to confirm that yes, this is a fake account. I'm not Wendi.
- — Wendi Deng Murdoch (@Wendi_Deng)Tue, Jan 03 2012 14:17:39And you have to wonder even more why Twitter verified this account for a full day. I never received any communication from them about this.
- — Wendi Deng Murdoch (@Wendi_Deng)Tue, Jan 03 2012 14:18:34You might ask "why didn't I tell them?" But surely Twitter should be checking out its Verified status more carefully? No?
- — Wendi Deng Murdoch (@Wendi_Deng)Tue, Jan 03 2012 14:23:33I'm sorry if some of you feel misled by this Twitter account, but I never said it was entirely genuine. I never said it was a spoof either.
- — Wendi Deng Murdoch (@Wendi_Deng)Tue, Jan 03 2012 14:36:00(And I'm as mystified as all of you as to why Twitter reopened its apparently closed Verified Account program for 'Wendi' and Rupert.)
- — Twitter Comms (@twittercomms)Tue, Jan 03 2012 15:53:43We can confirm that the @Wendi_Deng account was mistakenly verified for a short period of time and apologize for the confusion this caused.
Murdoch's 'wife' fools Twitter
Wendi Deng Murdoch's verified Twitter account turned out to be bogus Tuesday when someone else admitted to posing as Rupert Murdoch's wife on the microblogging site.
