Justin Bieber Dead? Not according to Twitter

Justin Bieber Dead

Justin Bieber Tweets about being alive and well

Justin Bieber Dead at the age of 15? The Internet can often be the catalyst for fake deaths and hoaxes.  This has occurred today with singer Justin Bieber.  Justin Bieber, who will be 16 on March 1, is known for hit songs like “One Time”, “Favorite Girl” and “Love Me”.  Bieber is in fact still alive, and this is a similar hoax to one that was pulled on the net back in early January 2010.  Some rumors back then had fans worried over Justin Bieber’s death as well.

This time Bieber was able to quickly squelch the rumor via  a simple tweet:

“and another rumor that I died?? The craziest stuff happens when I get on long plane rides. lol. Im ALIVE and well and very blessed. thanks. “

It’s probably good publicity since his BABY video hits iTunes tomorrow as you can also see from his tweet in the Justin Bieber Twitter image.

I guess this is another benefit of social media… a quick tweet from the celebrity can quickly falsify rumors.  The problem is going to be when one of this death rumors is true and someone also has their Twitter login and sends out a Tweet.  Hopefully we don’t see this anytime soon.
