If you browse through the top trends on Twitter Tuesday, you'll see many people paying their respects to the first man to set foot on the moon. Some even criticized the media for overlooking Neil Armstrong's death by focusing its attention on Miley Cyrus' controversial VMA performance instead.
But there's one detail these tweets are missing as they send around article links about the astronaut's passing: he's been dead for more than a year.
Armstrong passed away on August 25, 2012, but it appears an old article on ABC News' website was displayed on its mobile app with today's date instead.
As the old article went viral and more people clicked on it, it ended up on the trending column on ABC's website, thereby making even more people click on it, thinking it was breaking news.
Twitter has been notorious for killing off famous people who aren't really dead (it sometimes seems Eddie Murphy and Jeff Goldbloom die about once a month), but this might be the first time the social networking service fell behind on current events by a full year.
