A Long Island woman claims she was drugged and locked in a hospital psych ward for 8 days because a doctor didn't believe Barack Obama followed her on Twitter.

Kamilah Brock's lawyer told the New York Daily News that the horrible ordeal started last September when the NYPD pulled her over in Harlem and seized her BMW after accusing her of being high on marijuana. Her lawyer says no weed was found in the car.

Brock, 32, says that when she went to the station to get her vehicle back the next day, she was forcibly sedated and sent to Harlem Hospital as an "emotionally disturbed" person. She admits she may have acted emotional, but denies the "disturbed" part.

She says she told doctors that she works at a bank and that the president follows her on Twitter—both of which are true, and neither of which the doctors believed. According to her lawsuit, they thought she was delusion and bipolar, so they sedated her and kept her in treatment for more than a week.

According to the NYDN, Harlem Hospital's treatment plan for Brock read, "Objective: Patient will verbalize the importance of education for employment and will state that Obama is not following her on Twitter," and "patient's weaknesses: inability to test reality, unemployment."

In reality, Barack Obama's Twitter account—which is not actually run by President Obama, or even the White House—follows 640,000 people, including Brock. One way to "test" that reality might have been to look at Brock's Twitter account, which is public.
