Someone's bought the rights to the name? Like how Rapture kept relaunching under about 4 different owners.

The account was created in June 2020, so perhaps ScuzzTV's old Twitter handle was closed for so long, Twitter made it available again and someone was paying attention and is faking a channel relaunch? Stranger things have happened!

Or maybe Trace are going to relaunch Trace Latina as Trace Rock?

You can trace twitter user IDs and use the Wayback Machine to check things like that

This is the most recent Wayback Machine archive of that Twitter page - which is completely different.

How do you trace the user IDs?

I contacted the former channel manager of Scuzz and he has said that he's quite sure it's fake. Someone is just living out some form of fantasy it seems.

Paul Akinbola or Chris Williams? Razz

Well, they have "plans" to reveal tomorrow, I wonder what they will be...

If it is Paul Akinbola, I dread to think...

Here's the latest tweet, again without much detail:





If this is true, I'm guessing this could mean live in 24 hours, but it's hard to know what that means. It could mean online, or on TV, or maybe both.

If it was launching on TV I'm sure that there would be more information available, and there would have been an official announcement somewhere.

Yea, if it was real, a promo should be released.

And currently, I haven't seen any.
Its a good show!

And who reveals channel launch details on a Sunday at midday? It's clearly fake.

Here's the latest tweet, which would suggest that yesterday's tweet was a reference to 24 days, rather than hours:





IF true, this would suggest a launch date of Tuesday 28th July, which seems a bit odd.
