Twitter is a crazy place. Anyone can write anything, and if enough people retweet it, stories can spin out of control. The Les Miles resignation rumor seems to be the latest example. Somehow, it began circulating that Les Miles had an affair with a student and that he’s scheduled for a press conference Monday morning to resign. Except that nobody actually reported it. The most anyone ever even said in the first place was that it was a “rumor”, or that they saw it on a message board. File this one under the “dangers of social media” category. Unless of course it turns out to be true – then we’ll say we knew it all along. #LesMiles LSU coach rumored to be resigning Moday due to relationship with a student! #Rumor at the point, no hard facts yet! — Dan Oglesby (@DanOglesby) March 3, 2013 There are rumors that LSU head football coach Les Miles will step down on Monday after allegedly having an affair with a student.
