Even the best of the best are fooled by fake Twitter accounts. 

During a segment on ESPN's NFL Live, everyone was fooled by this account tweeting false news about Oliver Vernon heading to Jacksonville. 

At the time he tweeted the news, he used Fox Sports insider Jay Glazer's avatar and name, but never tried to change his handle. People still fell for it. NFL Insider Adam Schefter had to send out a live retraction after reporting the news from the tweet.

Afterwards, Glazer joked around that he was finally credited by ESPN, but it was for a fake account. That sucks.
