HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A fake Twitter account is spreading false information that classes at Horry County Schools are cancelled on Tuesday.
The account, @HorryCSchools, which was created this month, tweeted that school has been cancelled for September 12. The official, verified account for Horry County Schools, @HCSInfo, tweeted:
The unofficial account, which is named "Horry County Schools" and uses same profile and cover images as the district's official account, posted two other tweets: one said: "Horry County doesn't care about us," and the other was a reply to the official account's clarification, again stating: "School has been cancelled."
While the district's decision to resume school Tuesday has drawn ire from parents on social media, it is the official decision of the district.
