Bieber Tweets Out Dallas Phone Number

By Ryan Crowe,

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – An overnight tweet by Justin Bieber has phone lines across Dallas tied ‘Up‘ and going ‘Overboard.

The pop star sent out a message on Twitter Wednesday night likely intended to be a direct message to another user.  The tweet, sent around 10:30 Dallas time, said “call me right now” and gave a number with a 214 area code.

The problem is that Bieber had a question mark in place of the last digit, leaving fans to guess at it and giving at least one Dallas man some ‘Heartache.

Bieber deleted the tweet, but not before fans got a hold of it and started retweeting it.

The man estimates he’s received nearly 1,000 calls since Wednesday night from fans hoping to be Bieber’s ‘Favorite Girl.’

Emily Horton, the man’s attorney, says he started receiving the calls shortly after the tweet was sent out.  Horton says most of the callers have been polite, and have helped the man out when he asked them to message friends and others that it was not Bieber’s number.

The man has had the phone number for over 20 years, and is listed in the phone book.  He uses the number for both business and personal calls, so Horton says the man is reluctant to change the number.  “He doesn’t want to cut off communication with people,” she said.  “He wishes there were some way to filter out the calls, but at this time, there is no way to do that.”

Calls by Horton and the man to Bieber’s record label and publicist have not been returned.

Bieber has had incidents with twitter and phone numbers before.  In April 2010 he tweeted the number of a Michigan teen he was trying to get back at for hacking a friend’s account.

Last December actor Charlie Sheen accidentally posted his own cell number on Twitter while trying to send Bieber a direct message.

For now, the man can only ‘Pray‘ that the calls stop.  Until then, he’s simply ‘Stuck in the Moment.’

      1. Opinionated says:

        He’s just jealous of the guy because he gets called by random girls every night, while he’s still waiting for that one girl to call. BTW, if it’s been a week, she’s just not that into you.

    Wonder if people follow others on Twitter to simply hope for mess ups like

    Thanks for referencing a bunch of song titles that no one knows except for 13-year-old girls. It really added a lot to the article.

      Well said!

        If this isn’t national news I don’t know what is. So much of the news is orchestrated after the coup and cover up. Unelected officials took over Washington and the media. They think you can’t handle the truth. Fact of the matter is we have no democracy, president, and freedom of press is an illusion.

        Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out. Search PalinsDirtyLittleSecret for the biggest cover up in history

        hey JD. Still peddling your loony website to make money? spam, spam, spam, that’s all you do all day long.

  6. John says:

    HWLeaks need to tweet his real phone number. He’s nothing but a little punk who needs to learn a lesson.

    Can’t we deport people to Australia, like the British used to do?

    1. Joe E in the IE says:

      Turn him over to Sheriff Joe Arpaio. That’ll make a real man out of him in no time.

      1. Godzilla says:

        That’s doubtful. Something tells me the “Biebs” already wears pink underwear.

      2. johnson says:

        He looks and acts like a little girly boy, he’d make someone in jail a great little girlfriend. Or better yet send the little anti American back to Canada.

  8. Melissa Lipnutz says:

    Lttle Bieber needs to spend some trigger time in Afghanistan and stop acting like the 13 yo girls who gush over him. Oh yeah, he’s canadian and therefore shares no responsiblilty in world affairs…

    1. Clarity-jane Seer says:

      and what exactly are you empling, that he should be a pawn for the warmongers in Amerika? Miss Melissa you are a brainwashed ignorant American whose country is on the verge of civil war#2! good luck in your new 3rd world prison state!

      1. Espy says:

        Learn how to spell. Also see if you can bring up anything Canada has created that hasn’t left Canada as quickly as it could. Finally look at the Constitution and then look at the Constitutions of every other nation on Earth, then compare them to see which has been in use longer.

      2. Arlyn says:

        “Amerika” Really? Is this supposed to be offense? Learn how to spell.

      3. Tom says:

        Illiterate. Like most people of your ideological ilk. Yet you talk like an arrogant prick.

    2. Scott says:

      Hi Melissa,
      What did Bieber do to you?

      Are you currently serving in the armed forces? Which branch?
      I was US Army for 8 years, and I will say the military is not for everyone.

      Why knock Canada? Have you been there? Lots of great places. The country is the top foreign supplier of oil to the United States. For that alone, I think the country deserves a little latitude not attitude.

  9. Dave says:

    “Hi sweetheart. Yeah, sure, I’m Justin Bieber. How about a date in the hot tub? My agent will be there at first, so just have fun with him until I arrive. And remember, string bikinis only!”

  10. John says:

    the tweet was probably actually sent out by Chris Hansen. only these days it would be hard to tell if he is looking for a date or trying to catch predators like himself.

  11. IGetItAlready says:

    Fame and fortune and not enough brains to define either.
    Sounds like a boy king currently running a global superpower into the ground I know of.

  12. NoMoarPonies says:

    Beiber should go to Gitmo for this.

  13. Bob says:

    This Justin guy has had his 15 minutes. Time to put him up like all teen idols get put up sooner or later.

  14. Mike says:

    Caller ID is your friend.

  15. Mike says:

    Caller ID is your friend.

  16. Ted says:

    I’d sue the heck out of Justin Bieber for this. “Pain and emotional distress caused by the constant and threatening harassment of crazed Bieber fans”. Make this little twerp cough up some $$$$$

  17. Garr Obo says:

    If this dweeb is any indication of what makes young teen girls hot in the panties I can understand, somewhat, why they are such airheads. Poor things.

  18. Lee says:

    All Bieber has to do is apologize on his Twitter account regarding the number and the calls will stop. He should at least do that.

  19. Sharon says:

    To the reporter who wrote the story and his/her editor at CBS: It’s “ahold of,” not “a hold of”

    1. Pablo Cervantes says:

      Try to think for a moment. Neither expression is correct… colloquialisms that have no place in a written news article.

  20. Joe D. says:

    Bieber needs to apologize.

  21. Chester says:

    So sick, but so brilliant.

  22. Usa Travis says:

    This just proves his fans are idiots.

  23. linda says:

    bieber’s a twit…….who are the stupid bieberites calling thinking he’ll really talk to em? geeezzz

  24. John Moser says:

    I don’t think being Beiber’s “Favorite Girl” would really mean much.

  25. Smashicus says:

    Beiber’s greatest hits. Coming soon to a pawn shop in your area.

  26. The Sage Waitress says:

    Answer to this:

    Go to local library, pull out every reader service card from every magazine, and mail them to Justin Bieber. Encourage EVERYONE you know to do this. Spam his e-mail and website, too.

  27. Lin says:

    I’m a grandma of 8, and I Love JB! He’s a kid for goodness sake. Haven’t ANYONE OF YOU POSTED HERE DONE A CRAZY THING when you were young? At least it’s not like many young kids today shooting paople, doing drugs, stealing or such! I’m so shocked by the mean spirited people on this blog. This young man is VERY talented, and very, very giving to the less fortunate.

  28. Alice says:

    it’s sure that isn’t the bieber’s number,he would crazy if him tweet your number kkkkkk just the biliebers to call for this number.

  29. billr says:

    Just goes to show how idiotic people are these days.

    Just unplug the phone or turn it off. It seems phones are considered a necessity rather than a convenience.

  30. truspeek says:

    Beeeber is a freak and a total talentless waste of time.

    Five years from now we will be reading how he died of a drug overdose next to a subway men’s room entrance in DC.

    Elvis, at least, died in his own toilet room.

  31. Roland jonathan henry says:

    i love you never say never listen to my justin bieber tu es un canadien j’espere comme moi

  32. Pingback??? says:

    What are these STUPID pingbacks???? They are very annoying!!!

  33. Anthony says:

    Oh give it a few months, it’ll wear down. Certainly nothing to change a long term phone number about. Besides, the FCC has ruled that in 2014, AT&T can stop maintaining their infrastructure anyhow.
