“As temperatures in Minneapolis plummeted below zero on Sunday, word spread on Twitter that the Minnesota Vikings would open their 66,000-seat indoor stadium for the city’s homeless to take shelter for the night.
Local blogger Jake Nyberg was the first to post about the plan.
“As homeless in Mpls face record cold, @Vikings offer to open ‘The People’s Stadium’ overnight,” Nyberg wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted.
“It’s a proud night to be a @Vikings fan and a Minnesotan,” he said in another.
Before long, the story erupted. The verified account of a user named David Dellanave posted about it, drawing thousands of retweets and likes. Multiple news outlets, some citing Dellanave’s tweet, published articles about the supposed homeless shelter plan, among them CBS and Yahoo Sports.”
