Steve Jobs Is NOT Dead [Twitter Rumor]



Steve Jobs is NOT dead — it’s a screw-up by CBS.

The rumor — which is lighting up Twitter like crazy — was caused by an errant tweet from CBS’s “What’s Trending” feed. The tweet said:

“Reports say that Steve Jobs has passed away. Stay tuned for more updates.”

But CBS has now pulled the tweet and kinda apologized:

“Reports of Steve Job’s [sic] death completely unconfirmed.”

So, they don’t know one way or the other.

We’ve called Apple and left messages all over the PR department. The one live person we talked to said they’d get back to us shortly. But there obviously wasn’t a fire drill there, so it’s safe to assume Steve is still alive.
