The newscast network's morning
show deleted the mistaken tweet and well-known that the Brazilian soccer star's
representative states "he's alive and very well."
CNN's New Day morning show make
an apology for a breaking news tweet sent to its 55,000 followers on Friday
that the wrong way stated that Brazilian soccer legend Pele had died at age 74.
The tweet was removed (not
before Circa editor-in-chief Anthony De Rosa flagged the item, seen below) and
the account consequently sent two tweets noticing that Pele's representative
had stated that he was "alive and very well."
A CNN speaker tells THR that
the breaking news tweet was not the consequence of a hack.
