When the news broke on Wednesday afternoon that Dick Clark had died, one website got a little confused on Twitter.

Byliner, a website that bills itself as a discovery engine to help people find good works of fiction and non-fiction, accidentally tweeted that former Vice President Dick Cheney had died, along with a link to a story about Cheney:

After many retweets and comments about the incorrect tweet, Byliner deleted the tweet and 11 minutes later tweeted a correction:
