On April 14, 2009, a tweet surfaced from an account with the username @JedHoyer. The tweet simply read, “spanking it.”

Jed Hoyer is the general manager of the Cubs, and doesn’t have access to this Twitter account. When the first tweet emerged in 2009, Hoyer was an assistant general manager for the Boston Red Sox.
In 2015, Hoyer told Chicago sports radio station 670 The Score that “knows the guilty party that set it up,” and it was “set up as a joke.”
