It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
If you were on Twitter Wednesday morning and you follow Lions president Tom Lewand, your feed was invaded by Russian spambots. Hot on the heels of the story about Vladimir Putin stealing Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft’s Super Bowl ring, a Russian jerkface hacked into Lewand’s account and spewed rapid-fire tweets.
Roughly 40 tweets were sent out with spam links included. Lions beat writer Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press pulled up Google translator to see just what the spambots were into. They included, “Story of Hope grandmother’s diet” and “Is it possible to get rid of varicose veins with the aid of an extract of beer Sophia.” That’s golden.
Lewand has not deleted the tweets (hey, football has turned into a 365-day-a-year thing now), but he issued an apology.
