  • It’s no secret to the Twitterverse how quickly a single tweet can do massive damage. Rob Lowe is learning that in real-time, as his name trends all over the interwebs. On Wednesday afternoon, the “Parks and Rec” star tweeted that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is retiring.

    “Hearing my fave, #18 Peyton Manning will not return to #NFL. Wow. #Colts,” posted Lowe. Later, he tweeted at Rich Eisen for corroboration. Lowe wrote, “my people are saying Manning will retire today.” Both Manning’s father and rep say the information is false.

  • Coincidentally, Lowe is friends with Colts owner Jim Irsay. Perhaps, the actor will consult with him before giving his next sports brief. Suffice to say, the social Internet is responding rapidly to Lowe’s reporting skills.
