Tommaso De Benedetti who is a 43-year-old Roman schoolteacher is a elaborate twitter hoaxer.
He first tweeted to the world the death of the Pope under the username Holy Father's No. 2.
Then later tweeted to the world the death of Fidel Castro and Pedro Almodovar.
He wanted to expose how unreliable social media is since it was so easy for him to tweeted the death of the Pope, Fidel Castro and Pedro Almodovar.
In an interview with The Guardian, ''Social media is the most unverifiable information source in the world but the news media believes it because of its need for speed,'' he said.
