/erases Manti Te'o's name under "emergency contact"
nice

Quote:
Te'o also told Schaap that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man we identified as being behind Lennay Kekua, apologized to him Wednesday via Twitter direct message. Schaap said he saw the messages, but we're still not sure how such an apology would have worked. Tuiasosopo deleted his Twitter account weeks ago, and direct messages on Twitter require the recipient to follow the sender. We checked the list of Twitter users Te'o follows on Tuesday and didn't see any sign of Ronaiah.
hmm

This would be true if he just admitted to trolling. He would be GOAT. As it is going down now, meh

this was my favorite cover up for the question of why did he mention her after december 6th, and before he came clean. Thats how i interpreted it, anyway. really brilliant pr team to engage in revisionist history of the magnitude they have.

Te'o in a WW SE game would be hilarious beyond belief. Masons with an imaginary player controlled by the mod, of course.

Isn't that the same Twitter account that was tweeting jokes about Notre Dame's defense a few days ago?

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

no but seriously that account was created 3 days ago and was tweeting troll tweets about ND's defense 2 days ago

then those tweets were deleted and now that's the big apology? with absolutely no verification of who is behind the account?

does. not. add. up.

im no journalist, but i tweeted @deadspin and @bubbaprog about it. hopefully they can figure out wtf is going on.

The @LennayKay account that made the Alabama joke had this as it's avatar.

https://twitter.com/LennayKay




Even if those are DM's how the hell did the avatar change?

I do not understand why we're letting ESPN cover this story at all when clearly they're pro Notre Dame and have been Manti Te'os biggest fan all year. It's like when you find out your dad is cheating on you mom with your cleaning lady yet you still defined him.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Ok well this is just weirderer now. Those DM's are from Jan 16 2013. The Alabama @LennayKay was created the same day according to this article.


http://www.sbnation.com/college-foot...tter-manti-teo

So this means the DM's were sent that day, then they deleted the account and then someone (trolling) created it within a few minutes/hours of the story breaking.


So it was legit owned by the hoaxer, then he deleted it after confessing, then someone quickly jumped in to make it again.

it takes 30 days for the account screename to get released , so whoever made the DM made the tweet .

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

DM's are marked Jan 16 2013 ~1:00pm - 1:30pm (timezones maybe?)

Deadspin article was posted Jan 16, 2013 4:10pm (don't know what timezone)


LennayKay deleted after the confession

LennayKay reopened after deadspin article.


Edit: ok well I didn't know of the 30 day thing.
