Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher Died…But People on Twitter Thought It Was Cher Who Bit It
By now you’ve heard that former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died yesterday at the age of 87.
Or, if you get your news from Twitter, you may have heard that Cher died. That’s because after Thatcher’s death, someone started the confusing hashtag #nowthatchersdead.
The correct way to read that is “Now Thatcher’s Dead”. But it can also be read, Now That CHER’S Dead”.
Just so we’re clear: Thatcher’s dead…Cher’s still alive.
