Now You See @ShiaLabeouf, Now You Don’t

A day after a verified Twitter account for Shia Labeouf popped up on Twitter, it has been de-activated. In its wake, the best place to get a sense of what transpired are the tweets of next-door-actor @JamesUrbaniak.

Twitter Labeouf – or someone posting on the account’s behalf – got things rolling Monday with a couple of very straightforward greetings, only to then quickly delete them. This being Twitter, the disappearing act was grounds for all sorts of musings.

This is not the first time a celebrity has false-started on the platform. In the fall of 2011 for example, a consultant accidentally activated Kobe Bryant’s account before The Black Mamba was good and ready. Assuming this was indeed Mr. Labeouf, FishbowlLA is guessing the young Hollywood star will be back at some point.
