Red Sox Fan Screws with Conan Twitter Page

1/19/2010 9:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A renegade Boston Red Sox fan is responsible for SOME of the drama surrounding the "Conan on FOX" Twitter page ... TMZ has learned.

Conan O'Brien and Boston Red Sox

The original page was not a fake -- but it turns out, the "tweet" that appeared on the page was definitely a hoax.

After the original "Conan on FOX" page was taken down, another page appeared in it's place with the tweet, "Triumph means so many things to so many people SoSH."

The SoSH can be traced back to a Boston Red Sox fan forum called "Sons of Sam Horn." TMZ contacted one of the site's moderators who told us one of their faithful members, "on his own ... recreated the Conan on FOX Twitter site and referenced SoSH."

The moderator added, "he did not register the domain name or create the first Twitter account."

Yankee fans lack the wisdom to pull off such a hoax.

Good Lord, enough already with the Leno/O'Brien BS. Are they going to donate any of their multi-millions to food banks and charities here in the USA??

They found the guy who registered the domain name according to ABCnews.com tonight:

But hours later, the ConanonFox.com URL redirected visitors to a Twitter page, where an apparent O'Brien fan confessed online that he was behind the domain name, not Fox. A Fox representative had confirmed to ABCNews.com that the domain was not registered by Fox.

On his Twitter page, the fan, listed as Brandon Cecil, said he tried to reserve the domain name for O'Brien and Fox so "they wouldnt (sic) get screwd (sic) like JimmykimmelLive.com."

The domain name JimmykimmelLive.com does not direct fans of ABC comedy show host Jimmy Kimmel to his official, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Web site, but rather to a non-ABC site.
