In case you missed the update to our previous story about this topic, we'd like to advise that the twitter account assumed by many to belong to Frank Welker has proven to be hoax.
Voice actors Maurice Lamarche and Rob Paulsen have both reportedly spoken to Welker and confirmed that Frank is not the owner of the account in question, @thefrankwelker.

Some people speculated this was the case, considering the lack of the Twitter "Verified" check mark, but most used the endorsement by other actors as proof.

The hoax tricked many, celebrity and fan alike, but perhaps it just proves people's devotion to the legendary voice actor.
If Frank really does join social media, you'll hear about it here, on Seibertron.com!

Shouldn't ALL "news reports" first put a "Rumor" disclaimer FIRST?! :roll: This is FAKE NEWS! I'm basing this statement from your own info and not just "personal opinion".

The news was initially legit, according to all sources.

Those sources then rectified.



Please go rant elsewhere, ta.
