HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Alabama A&M University is warning against a Twitter account impersonating an official school media page.

@connect_aamu, a Twitter account created in February 2017, tweeted a screenshot from the AAMU website with the headline: Sexually Transmitted Infection/Disease Outbreak On Campus. That tweet has been retweeted over 300 times.

AAMU says the image is doctored and the information is false.

We have reached out to AAMU and they provided us with an official statement:
