Is Steve Jobs Dead? Steve Jobs Death Rumor Hits Twitter
Inevitable Steve Jobs Death Rumor: Steve Jobs is Not Dead
A Steve Jobs death rumor has been racing across Twitter. Unlike previous celebrity death rumors, this one did not involve snowboarding. Instead, you can blame CBS News.
CBS News' What's Trending tweeted that Steve Jobs died: "Reports say that Steve Jobs has passed away. Stay tuned for more updates." Less than a minute later, the tweet was gone. However, look at what happened to AAPL stock.
What's Trending has since deleted the tweet (which is even now being retweeted), and has issued a (by necessity) brief apology:
Apologies- reports of Steve Job's death completely unconfirmed. Live on.
There has been no confirmation that Steve Jobs has died.
Steve Jobs, who has been suffering from pancreatic cancer, has recently stepped down as Apple CEO.
