I can't trust any of you anymore. Any one of you could be a fake account operated by Kevin Durant to push his agenda.

@rodger_sherman, tweeting after basketball superstar Kevin Durant may have accidentally given himself away for having fake Twitter accounts. On Sunday, Twitter user @ColeCashwell tweeted at Durant, asking why he left the Oklahoma City Thunder. Surprisingly, Durant responded directly — but he answered in third person. The tweet led people to believe Durant uses fake Twitter accounts to defend himself.

@vivaausvegas, tweeting a picture of Dreamworks character Shrek on a backyard deck. It’s a new meme where people share the caption, “You’ve heard of ‘Elf on the Shelf,’ ” a reference to the children’s holiday book, with a new rhyming image combination. The meme seemed to randomly pop up, but it inspired a lot of people to get creative with their rhymes. People came up with celebrity rhymes such as Drake on a cake, from @TheHashtag0nist; and RuPaul on a U-Haul from @OverDosinOnKaty.

DC Public Schools trends during the Emmys.
“This Twitter trumpeting is not the victory to embrace. This trending is … pretending there isn’t huge work ahead. … Pretending you know what the heck you’re tweeting about, Emmy watchers.”
Petula Dvorak, of The Washington Post, scolding D.C. Public Schools for feeling honored that #DCPublicSchools was trending on Sunday night after alumnus Dave Chappelle, above, at the Emmys gave the district a shout-out, which was then amplified by John Oliver. “Likes, retweets and followers are hardly a measure of success,” Dvorak wrote.
