"Incarcerated Bob" is alive, not dead as his Twitter feed claimed recently, WFAN reported today.

Incarcerated Bob is a sports fan who frequently calls into radio shows, especially on WFAN in New York.

After a two-week Twitter hiatus, his account announced to its more than 300 followers on Jan. 2, ""RIP" Incarcerated Bob ... 1980-2010 Rest in peace baby brother.... You will be missed."

A "family member" was supposedly updating the account (@incarceratedbob) and continued to do so.

Just hours ago, the account wrote, "We hacked Bob's acct, the assholes password was(12345q) not the brightest guy around..his death made news LOL (He's finished)."
