Created by the British website Is Thatcher Dead Yet?, the hashtag #nowthatchersdead has led to some dim bulbs on Twitter to believe that Cher is dead.
In other words, "#nowthatcherisdead, who will tour infinitely and be Kathy Griffin's reluctant BFF?"
At least the Twitterverse has comedian Ricky Gervais to set everyone straight:
Some people are in a frenzy over the hashtag #nowthatchersdead.It's "Now Thatcher's dead". Not, "Now that Cher's dead" JustSayin'

No response yet from Cher, who is hopefully still alive and well.
