now this is interesting – July 27th, 2012.

disinfo? YES. According to IT security expert, Christopher Soghoian , they are fake!!

The last tweet from Christopher Soghoian @csoghoian reads: “Wow. @NickBilton, NYT’s lead tech writer tweeted the fake @nytkeller op-ed. Pretty big fail to not recognize your own domain name.”

the first link is the (fake) PayPal and below is the (fake) NYT.

http://www.opinion-nytimes.com/2012/07/29/opinion/keller-a-post-postscript.html  

perhaps the funniest part of this is that Bill Keller himself retweeted it, before realising it was fake ..

if only this was all just neverending lulz, but case in point of how sources themselves recirculate disinformation..
