Strange things are happening on Twitter -- and it's not just celebrity death hoaxes and the fail whale. For some reason not yet made public, Ryan Murphy's account no longer seems to exist. Not as it used to exist anyway...

The account is technically still. It has just been emptied of its past. No photos, no information, no people it's following. After all of the posts were deleted, Murphy posted just once. Nothing else in the account's history returned.

At some point on Tuesday (Dec. 18), everything one could find under the username @MrRPMurphy vanished.

Has the creator of such shows as "Glee," "American Horror Story" and "The New Normal" just disappeared from the social-networking site?

Apparently not. A few hours after the initial disappearance, Murphy sent out a single tweet of reassurance to his followers: "Account wasn't hacked. I will be back. Happy Holidays!" No further explanation was provided. »
