NFL: WR Shipley says Twitter account wasnít his

AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI ó Chad Ochocinco was insulted when the Cincinnati Bengals' newest receiver didn't respond to his congratulatory tweet on draft day.

There was no reason to be upset. The Twitter account set up for Jordan Shipley wasn't legitimate.

The receiver from Texas was drafted by the Bengals in the third round last week. Ochocinco immediately tweeted congratulations to what appeared to be Shipley's Twitter account, the one that used his name and longhorn cattle as the background. The problem is Shipley doesn't use Twitter or Facebook.

His agent has gotten Twitter to remove the account.
