Are the Beastie Boys truly on Twitter?

On March 3, I got an message that the Beastie Boys were following my Empoprises Twitter account @empoprises.

So I went to @beastieboys to check it out.

The following/followers numbers looked like they were in reasonable balance, which was a good sign.

One of the tweets linked to material at, which was another good sign, although the site didn't explicitly mention the Twitter account.

However, a Coed Magazine post did.

So, Beastie Boys, what'cha want? (In addition to promoting "Paul's Boutique," of course.) Here's the March 2 post:

Check us out on Quicksilver's Race to S.K.A.T.E.

So I checked them out. Again there's an album promotion, along with this text:

Every Friday during the Month of March at 7:00PM Eastern (4:00PM Pacific) Quiksilver will upload a video of a different Quiksilver pro doing five tricks. Your job is to film yourself doing those same five tricks earning yourself one letter per trick spelling S.K.A.T.E.

Of course, if I had been paying attention to this @lutheranlucciol tweet I would have known this a few days ago.
