Rumors, Twitter reports of Patrick Swayze's death are false, publicist says

Patrick Swayze's publicist released a statement this morning denying reports of the actor's death. The Twitter microblogging network was ablaze this morning with reports that Swayze, 56 and suffering from pancreatic cancer, had died. Here's the release from publicist Annett Wolf:

This is to confirm that Patrick Swayze did not pass away this morning contrary to severely reckless reports stemming from a radio station in Jacksonville, Florida. Patrick Swayze is alive, well and is enjoying his life and he continues to respond to treatment.

This is why i hate twitter such a stupid thing that people dont know how to handle. Too many impersanations on that thing people have no lives I know technology is too blame but do we really need this in our lives to know what your doing at that moment in time. I find twitter useless and I feel like it's doing more harm than helping especially in our youth!
