Duly Quoted: Shawn Micallef

“Twitter sorts itself out poorly…can see how this medium could cause bad panic one day.”
Shawn Micallef on the news, since proven false, that Gordon Lightfoot died. The rumour apparently originated with Ronnie Hawkins, spread quickly after a CanWest National Affairs Correspondent tweeted the news, and spread faster after multiple CanWest properties reported on Lightfoot’s death (articles since unpublished).
