Fake URL TrollingĀ is super easy but very effective!

  1. Email/twitter/post a fake shocking story or breaking news to a friend/group.

  2. Make up a nice long URL (WordPress title style) to prolong the shock moment.

  3. The 404 will make the target wonder if the post was taken down or the link is just broken.

Examples:

Never hit RT before you’ve seen the WWW!

    Hey,
    I got this brilliant idea:
    How about we set up a F.A.T. Rumor Creating Structure on Twitter where people will register and will spread a particular lie all at once?
    Then this lie will get more attention on twitter and perhaps even trend?
    I think we’ll get more exposure with this.
    We can do similar things with reddit and all.
