    Wendi Murdoch’s Twitter Account a Fake

    Looks like there aren’t any problems in the Murdoch household after all: it turns out the Twitter account thought to belong to Wendi Deng Murdoch was a fake. After Rupert Murdoch opened an account on New Year’s Day, someone with the Twitter handle @Wendi_Deng immediately began tweeting back at him. The tweets ranged from innocuous ones like “very proud of @rupertmurdoch for getting on twitter. never too old to start!!!” to ones that were critical of the media tycoon. There were rumors Monday that Rupert was irked with his wife over the tweets, but there's no need for him to be angry: the twitterer admitted Tuesday that “it's time to confirm that yes, this is a fake account. I’m not Wendi.”
