LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Anytime an
athlete or celebrity makes national news they get a jump in Twitter followers.
The same goes for Louisville's Kevin Ware,
but all those followers come with a problem people posing as Ware.
Jump on twitter and you will find
several accounts using Ware's name and pictures.
For example, one account "Kevin Ware @_Woody23" has over 20,000 followers, while another account "KevinWare @5KevinWare"
has more than 38,000 followers.
Both accounts show messages from other
Twitter users promising prayers for Kevin's recovery.
Both accounts are fake, but that has
not stopped the operators from posing as Ware saying they are feeling better
and doing okay.
The bottom line - be careful about
what you post on Twitter.
If you would like to offer support to
the real Kevin Ware's be sure to follow his real Twitter account @_billionairebev.
