Truth or Fiction

One of my favorite segments on podcasts like Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and The Skeptics Guide to the Universe are the truth or fiction puzzles in which contestants are asked to distinguish between true and false statements. This can test our knowledge of current events (as below), discernment, or subtle distinctions.

Truth or fiction?

Two of these are true, which one is false?

a. self-confessed technophobe Simon Cowell has joined Twitter.
b. Dead man tweeted his last few minutes alive.
c. Mounties miffed about fake Twitter account.

Answer: b. = False
