Antonio Brown seems like the last person who would get use out of a burner Twitter account. The guy is so transparent in his self-interest and narcissism that you almost have to respect it.
Alas, there is some evidence pointing toward Brown using a burner account to tweet about Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, among other things.
Twitter users became skeptical of Tav58111115 on Nov. 7, the date of the account’s first tweet. Each of the accounts tweets are replies to someone tweeting about Brown or a situation related to the embattled receiver. Sometimes the replies are tweets from Brown’s official Twitter account. Furthermore, all of the tweets feature the same disjointed, nonsensical writing style for which Brown has become known.
That brings us to Sunday night when, in the middle of the Patriots’ ugly loss to the Houston Texans, Tav58111115 offered this reply to a tweet from ESPN’s Josina Anderson:
Missin AB tho

Make of all that what you will.
Speculation of a potential reunion between Brown and the Patriots, who released him in September, has persisted as New England’s offense has continued to struggle. However, even though some of the team’s players and coaches reportedly want the 31-year-old back, Brown himself might have ended any hope Monday morning.
