It’s a grand British tradition. A ‘the Queen is dead’ hoax. Last night, a screencap of a WhatsApp chat group was posted on Twitter, in which a user called ‘Gibbo’ claimed (to his mates, who had names like ‘Ricey’) that the Queen had passed away from a heart attack. The screencap flashed across Twitter at the speed of light, and though the claim was disproved pretty sharpish, needless to say the roiling maelstrom that is Twitter ran away with things both during the febrile moments of belief, and after.
