We love Twitter (you can follow us @borsheimsbrk), but sometimes Twitter can be so, so wrong.
Like yesterday afternoon when Twitter users started to spread the rumor that Warren Buffett had died. Not so. In fact, his daughter told the Omaha World Herald he was sitting in his living room reading the newspaper. Can’t you just picture him sitting there, hearing about his own “death”?
Warren Buffett’s health is always a topic in Omaha and elsewhere. And by all accounts, he is in great health.
I remember several years ago – in my former life as a news reporter – we got several calls that Mr. Buffett was very sick with cancer. He was not. He had gone to see his doctor who happened to be on the same floor as an oncologist and people made assumptions. Good thing reporters call and verify stories before reporting them. I wish Twitter users had the same methods.Share This
