Comic Bill Cosby used microblogging website Twitter Monday to let his fans know he was still alive after rumors he was dead swept the internet.
As of Monday afternoon, "Bill Cosby died" was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, and "is Bill Cosby dead" was the No. 2 "hot topic" on Google Trends, which tracks terms entered into the search engine.
But shortly before 4:00pm ET, Cosby wrote: "Again, I'm rebuttaling [sic] rumors about my demise."
Cosby was at the center of another death rumor in February, prompting him to tweet: ďAs you well know, a dead person cannot rebuttal. Therefore, I am rebuttaling to tell you that when I heard the news I immediately began rebuttaling and went into denial."
He acknowledged that "rebuttal" was not used as a verb -- but added: "I donít care, because Iím alive!"
Ever the salesman, Cosby went on to tweet Monday that he has an iPhone app available that features video and audio clips and concert information.
