The Smiths Join Twitter

It’s hard to say how or why something like this even happens, but someone at Warner Music has started a Smiths Twitter account and gotten it verified. Presumably, this will have something to do with marketing old Smiths records, or maybe Smiths reissues, if there are any of those coming. But considering this band’s turbulent history, it would be pretty amazing if it turned out to be a way for Morrissey to bitch about the rest of the guys in the band, or for the rest of the guys in the band to bitch about Morrissey. In any case, nobody has tweeted anything yet, and you can follow the account here. (The whole thing is especially goofy when you remember that the last time Morrissey was on Twitter, it wasn’t Morrissey, either.)
