Early this morning the city of Yokohama, Japan "accidentally" tweeted that North Korea had launched a missile. The report came by way of their official Twitter account @yokohama_sagai, which has roughly 40,000 followers.
The tweet read North Korea has launched a missile, and was deleted just 20 minutes later. Yokohama officials said that "We had the Tweet ready and waiting, but for an unknown reason it was dispatched erroneously."
This mistake comes just two days after a Taiwan news source mistakenly
reported the death of the Queen of England, reported the death of former UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher and used images of Queen Elizabeth.
