Breaking Bad Prank Shows You What Happens When You Post Your Phone Number on Twitter

By Sam Gibbs on at

If you were in any doubt that posting your real phone number publicly on Twitter was a bad idea, this hilarious pranking of a legion of Breaking Bad fans should put that to rest. Seriously, just don't.


Aaron Paul, aka Jesse from Breaking Bad, put out a call on Twitter for phone numbers, seemingly volunteering to actually ring people and talk through what was happening on the show. Whether he genuinely did or not, who knows, but pranksters did, and well and truly suckered some folks.

Apparently all you need to do to get people to believe you're Aaron Paul is to shout "bitch" at them when they pick up, as ZeoStorm aptly demonstrates. This is why you shouldn't tweet out your personal info, folks -- you never know who might grab it and try and screw you. [YouTube via Kotaku]
