People on Twitter mistakenly thought that David Attenborough died this morning

David Attenborough is alive and well.

EVERYONE’S SECOND FAVOURITE voice to hear when they are hungover (the first being the delivery guy from dominos), is celebrating his 91st birthday today. British veteran broadcaster David Attenborough put fear into the hearts of many Twitter users this morning who saw that his name was trending and jumped to the worst conclusion.

Twitter took note and added some context to the trending topic

Attenborough became interested in nature from a very young age.

He had his own “museum” by age seven which was admired by nobel prize winning archaeologist Jacquetta Hawkes. 84 years later, to the relief of Twitter and everyone who likes watching TV on a Sunday afternoon, he’s still going strong.



Hopefully he has a few more years in him, because I don’t think we can cope with another “David’s dead” for a long time after this:
