On Monday, it appeared that Jets receiver David Clowney was on the Larry Johnson career path, via a Twitter rant that invited a fan via direct message to “kill yourself” and a string of “F” bombs on his public page.
But the Jets have since explained that Clowney’s Twitter account was hacked by a “rogue tweeter.” Indeed, some of the messages posted by the hacker acknowledge said hacking.
The most recent post, from roughly 11 hours ago, apparently was from the real Clowney: “Everybody this is David!! I am so sorry, these comments ARE NOT me.”
Still, the profane tweets remain. Someone should tell Clowney that there’s a way to delete them.
All that said, some will suspect that Clowney himself is the “rogue tweeter,” and that after going partially rogue he tried to cover it up by posing as a hacker.
