A tweet by a BBC Reporter had US networks scrambling.
Ahmen Khawaja, a reporter working for the BBC's Urdu-language service, quickly deleted the tweet.
Khawaja later said that she had left her cellphone at home unattended. She tweeted: "Silly prank, Apologies for upsetting anyone!"
The initial report of the Queens death was picked up by CNN Newsource.
Other networks actually picked up the phone and found out that the rumor was not true before sending anything out.
I know, what a novel concept. Right?
