Show us your tweets: #nowthatchersdead edition

Posted 7:11pm on Tuesday, Apr. 09, 2013

There was a world of confusion in the Twitterverse on Monday when #nowthatchersdead went viral. It was created in the wake of the death of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, but many read it as "now that Cher's dead." A reminder of one of the prime rules of existence: Capitalization matters, people!

I almost put on a black veil when I saw the hashtag ?#nowthatchersdead. @cher, I'm glad you're with us-hooooo.

@CaptainBobbie

The #nowthatchersdead hashtag is terribly worrying and misleading for Cher fans ... (don't worry, Cher can never die, her parts are too new)

@RyanJohnNelson

I find all these Americans that still think Cher is dead hilarious

@HafdanDaBlack

Where is Cher in all of this? How can we be certain she's not dead as well -- has anyone heard from her lately???

@PamelaJCrooks

Breaking news! Cher has fans who are on Twitter ...
