Rick Sanchez’s Twitter Account Suspended?

CNN’s Rick Sanchez is one of the most popular people on Twitter, with more than 112,000 followers. Now those followers are being led into a void.

Rick Sanchez.pngHere’s the message anyone going to @ricksanchezcnn got today:

Sorry, the account you were headed to has been suspended due to strange activity. Mosey along now, nothing to see here.

Unlike most celebrities with large followings, Sanchez follows a lot of people — more than 45,000.

The first mention on Twitter of his account being suspended came shortly after 3 p.m. today.

WebNewser will try to find out what’s going on and report back. It could be a hack; it wouldn’t be the first time Sanchez’s account was attacked.

Sanchez also was the recent target of an anonymous account whose owner highlights a 1990 accident in which the car Sanchez was driving struck a pedestrian who eventually died from his injuries. That account has been shut down.

In the meantime, Twitterers who haven’t seen the “suspended account” message on @ricksanchezcnn continue to converse, berate and argue with Sanchez. It’s sorta funny.
