Remember the fake Levi Johnston Twitter we had a little fun with a while back?  Well, it turns out it was indeed fake. [shocking]

“Levi Johnston’s Twitter imposter has finally come clean. … After Conan O’Brien apologized Thursday night to Johnston for a skit William Shatner performed on ‘The Tonight Show’ Wednesday, in which he dramatically read the missives from @LeviJohnston05 under the premise that they were from Bristol Palin’s former fiance, the still-anonymous account holder has adopted a new Twitter handle: @notlevijohnston.

Kudos to the folks running the fake account. For this to get as far as Conan is amazing. As for Conan’s official response to being duped:

‘I’d like to apologize personally to Levi Johnston and his lawyer and publicist for misrepresenting him in any way,’ said O’Brien. ‘Levi is clearly a great American. We wish him the best of luck as he trains for his upcoming naked photo shoot.’

Hysterical.
