SALT LAKE CITY -- Someone is sending out "tweets" in Elizabeth Smart's name -- but it's not Elizabeth.
Friday, right before the verdict in the Brian David Mitchell case was read, a tweet, supposedly from Smart, was sent out saying, "I am truly blessed." But according to her father, Ed Smart, Elizabeth's does not have a Twitter account, nor has she ever had one.
Ed Smart says he doesn't know who's behind the account, but says it was set up a year ago without the family's knowledge.
They are now working to figure out who is sending out information in Elizabeth's name.
