Morrissey on The Smiths’ new Twitter account: “Follow it at your peril”

Warner Bros set up the account to celebrate The Smiths

Morrissey acknowledged the new The Smiths‘ Twitter account by stating “Follow it at your peril.”

The account was set up by Warner Bros. with The Smiths’ fans quick to assume the band was about to get back together. Unfortunately, it’s been confirmed that it’s going to be used to “celebrate the history and music of the Smiths.”

Morrissey, who doesn’t have a Twitter account, took to fan webzine True to You to comment on the new social account.

“A Smiths/Morrissey Google alerts/Twitter account has been opened by Warner UK,” it began. “Morrissey would like to stress that this account has not been sanctioned by him and has no connection to him. Follow it at your peril.”

Last month, it was reported that Morrissey had been invited to London to become a Mayoral candidate. A statement on his True to You site claims that the singer has been invited to join the Animal Welfare Party for their upcoming election.

The post continues to explain that Morrissey would need 330 signatures of support to enter, with the statement claiming that The Smiths frontman “is considering the contest very seriously.”
