Many users on Twitter suggested that "@birdtheBanana" could time travel or was involved in some kind of conspiracy, while many took the prediction very seriously, calling on gods and prophets to make sense of it all. Others asked him to explain how he had predicted the exact date.

Fact Check

The tweet raised hundreds of possibilities and questions. NewsMeter understood that only the person who had posted that tweet had the answer. So, we searched Twitter for the user "@birdtheBanana" for a proper statement.

We found a statement released by the prophetic Twitter user explaining that the event was merely a coincidence. "I must make it clear that this statement was merely a comedic prediction and I have no connections to any cult, religion, organization and or conspiracy," he wrote.

From this, it is evident that the viral tweet was a coincidence and that a Twitter user did not predict Queen Elizabeth's death. Hence, the claim is false.
