National Football League boss' wife busted running fake Twitter account

National Football League boss' wife busted running fake Twitter account

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell's wife has been using an anonymous Twitter account to defend her husband.

Jane Skinner Goodell replied to the Journal with a written response. I'm also a wife and a mom. "I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love-and I always will", she writes in her statement about the man she's been married to for 20 years. I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!' However, a closer investigation by The Wall Street Journal revealed that the account was actually run by none other than Goodell's wife.

The account, per the Journal's report, had no followers, and its avatar picture was the infamous Twitter egg.

Skinner confirmed the account was hers to the Journal.

Skinner was a former daytime news anchor, who worked for Fox News Channel and co-hosted "Happening Now" with Jon Scott. "He is already doing this".

There is 32GB of native storage inside the F3 Lite and the good thing is that the storage is expandable up to 256GB. There will also be a 20MP rear camera with LED flash and it will be backed by a 4000mAh battery.

The account remained dormant in 2014, but it has criticized sports reporters over their coverage of the embattled commissioner in recent weeks, the Journal reported. The accompanying comment read: "Roger Goodell with three guys who will be disowned by their families tomorrow". For KD, the accounts were just a way for him to return the favor without it becoming a headline nationwide.

Of course, this calls to mind Kevin Durant's attempt to defend himself on Twitter through a fake account, which blew up spectacularly when he tweeted in third person from his verified handle. From Kate Upton sticking up for Justin Verlander not winning a Cy Young previous year to Miko Grimes cheerleading for her husband, cornerback Brent Grimes, on social media, plenty of athletes have gotten a digital assist from their significant others.

The national anthem controversy began with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem last season as part of a protest against police brutality.
