@ESpitzer Probably Not the Real Spitzer

Late Friday afternoon news just broke that Keith Olbermann got fired again, this time from Current TV. Olbermann will be replaced by Eliot Spitzer, the former governor of New York and CNN host. However, Eliot Spitzer is probably not the person tweeting from the @ESpitzer handle referenced in Current’s press release announcement about this switch. There have been no new tweets on that account since 2010 and it includes posts such as, “Just kidding. Please help me gain followers.”

Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer will debut tonight at 8p.m. ET. And Keith Olbermann is firing back with this statement (also available in parts on Twitter) promising legal action. Stay tuned to TVNewser for updates on this story.

Update: TVNewser’s Alex Weprin has confirmation on the mix up.
