Bob Dylan fans around the world rejoiced on Wednesday morning when they discovered that their favorite folk musician finally joined the social media ranks by signing up for Twitter and posting his first message.

Unfortunately, their excitement quickly turned to disappointment upon discovered that they were duped… the ‘Hurricane’ singer’s account was a fake.

An account with the handle @BobDylanTweets tweeted “My First Tweet. Hi! Bob,” this morning followed quickly by a second tweet reading “Joining Twitter today. First time.”

Despite the fact that the account was unverified and that Dylan already has a promo account run by his team (@bobdylan), nearly 5,000 people began following within hours.

A spokesperson for Dylan spoke with Rolling Stone this afternoon to confirm that the new Twitter account was “definitely a fake account.”

The Twitter account has since been suspended.
