"I am alive and healthy," he added.
A Twitter account called 'Politics for All Ireland', which had three followers at the time, reportedly tweeted earlier that Soros' family had confirmed that Hungarian-born American investor George Soros died of a heart attack.
This tweet was soon picked up by another Twitter user, Cillian, who has been termed by many as a conspiracy theorist. His tweet quickly became viral and was viewed more than 745,000 people at that time.
Another prominent user, Matt Wallace, a right-wing influencer and crypto investor, who has been accused of sharing misleading content and investment "scams" in the past, further claimed that Soros died of a heart attack, without providing any evidence.
"George Soros is alive and healthy. Rumors on social media that he suffered a heart attack and died are false," a spokesperson for the Open Society Foundations, founded by Soros, later clarified.
