Twitter users: Phil Mickelson needs your help (update: Fakery warning)
Here are Mickelson’s “Tweets” thus far:
Trying to figure this thing out!
@rainn I am following you?
@rainnwilson I am following you?
@the_real_shaq Now Shaq I am a huge fan!
OK have fun with The Masters today!
@stewartcink Seems like you know what you’re doing! How do I increase my followers :) ?
So while it’s possible this isn’t the real Phil Mickelson (Twitter is rampant with fakes), it’s still pretty funny and, dare I say, cute. So if you’re a Twitterer (you hear me Golf Girl?) go give Lefty (or faux Lefty) a hand.
Oh, and you can find me Twittering away here.
Update: Well, so much for the cuteness factor. This recent tweet is a pretty strong giveaway that it’s a fraud:
Thanks for all the follows! Can you help me get to 20,000 this week? LET’S GO!!!
Sorry, for the life of me I can’t imagine why Phil Mickelson would give a rat’s behind how many followers he has. Or why someone so new to Twitter would want 20,000 followers. So, unless I miraculously get a call from Lefty or his management team, my call is that it’s a fake. Sorry about that.
Update 2: Of course, using a fake name on Twitter rates about a .000001 on the Madoff Fraud scale, or .001 on the Martin Eisenstadt scale, so keep your torches and pitchforks where they are.

The Cheap Bastard couldn't agree with you more. And what are you wearing?
