Heh. As Twitchy reported, Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend hoax went on for months. Te’oing became the new Eastwooding and even Donald Trump got in on the buzz-filled action.
Now comes word that Manti Te’o deleted his @MTeo_5 Twitter account during the Super Bowl. Yet another harrowing result of the power outage?
Why did Manti Teo delete his Twitter during the blackout?

Manti Teo shut down his twitter account. I would make a witty sarcastic comment for this, but I’m busy making his gf a Valentine’s Day card.

Manti Teo has decided to shut down his Twitter account. A decision that leaves his pretend girlfriend feeling like she doesn’t even exist.
