That number is composite (not prime) by definition. b
^{a} for b>1, a>1, a and b integer, is composite; b is a factor. This may win the prize for most obviously NOT prime (which is public embarrassment). It has one prime factor and over a hundred million distinct composite factors 2
^{1}, 2
^{2}, 2
^{3}, ..., 2
^{102589932}.

It also happens to have a superficial relationship to the largest known Mersenne prime, 2
^{82589933}1, whose exponent is 20M less.

Possibilities, more likely first: Inaccurate post lacking +c, trolling, combination, computation error, something else, new prime discovery.
In the very unlikely event that it's a Mersenne prime discovery, verification should have quietly occurred without posting an exponent, then announcement via MRI Inc. press release.
