The Colorado Rockies’ Twitter account decided to get a little saucy during a bizarre afternoon on the social media platform.
With verified accounts across the site temporarily frozen by a hack, the Rockies’ handle played along with a tweet intimating it might have been hacked, too.
The tweet, sent out at 4:52 p.m., offered Bitcoin to followers with a supposed address. Dozens of replies following within minutes, including one from the Rockies that said “Just kidding,” with a GIF of a laughing Nolan Arenado.
We are excited to giveback to our amazig fans.
All Bitcoin sent to address below will be sended back quadrupled for the next 5280 miliseconds.

So was it all a ruse? According to replies from the account, yes.
