Is FOX preparing for Conan O’Brien to join their network?
From the looks of a Twitter page registered to Twentieth Century Fox, it looks like the company is at least covering their bases in case it really does happen. > Update: It’s fake.

Let the speculation begin.
Someone at FOX having some fun at NBC’s expense (and without the knowledge of the top execs)? Signs there is a deal in the works? As the current tweet says, “stay tuned.”
> Update: As of 4:45pmET, the account is suspended again. Kate Aurthur of the Daily Beast tweets: “Fox source on @ConanonFOX: ‘From what we can tell, it’s a hoax.’
> Update 2: Now there’s a new account @FakeConanOnFOX – and it’s clearly the same person who ran the fake one. Alex Weprin of Broadcasting & Cable tweets the person filed a fake WHOIS registration which could cause some major problems. Either way, not real.
