Unfortunately, the Twitter account @TrentRich03 is a fake, as confirmed by the Akron Beacon Journal on Sunday.
"It is not real," University of Alabama official Josh Maxson wrote in an e-mail to the Beacon Journal. "Trent does not have a Twitter (account) and isn't planning on getting one."
When it comes to bogus Twitter accounts, the number of followers is what tends to fool people most. In this case, Bizarro Trent had nearly 16,000 followers, a figure impressive enough for several media outlets to cite the feed in reports.
Of course, the tweets weren't nearly as entertaining as Bizarro Brett Favre, a hacker who famously gave updates on "Meatball Mondays" and mowing his lawn.
