1. Earlier tonight, The Flaming Lips sent out a tweet announcing that they’ve broken up, but immediately deleted it. But the tweet remains online thanks to the anguished modified tweets of some of their fans.
NOOOOOOO!!! RT @theflaminglips: We have sad news We’ve broken up…
2. Then they sent out another tweet saying that they were just kidding, which was also deleted.
But it was saved by Twitchy.
3. And then they sent out this tweet reminding fans that it’s their 30th anniversary as a band.
The Flaming Lips
That last announcement was a bit premature.
