Internet Indeterminacy – OMG Cher Has Died!

Thatcher is Dead?

If you want a clear example of how the Internet is an indeterminate media, look no further than the reports of confusion on Twitter at the death of former UK Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

#nowthatcherisdead quickly became a trend on Twitter when the news broke, but it also led to some people wondering what had happened to Cher!

Cher is alive and well by all accounts, but she must be bemused at the spike in interest at her well-being or, indeed, the rancour and hatred that the thought of Thatcher still attracts in parts of the world but have been mystifying for the singer.
