The breakneck speed with which the online world has grown is enough to concern even the most recreational of social media observers.
We have fully allowed ourselves to be integrated into this digital dimension, for better or for worse. Sure, it’s highly convenient to open up your laptop and send an electronic payment to someone clear across the country for vintage hats or midcentury modern coaster sets, but we often forget just what entails.
This easy transaction is made possible by the fact that your personal banking data is now out there, wherever there is, for ne’er do wells to dig around for.
Sometimes they strike pay dirt, of course, as was the case with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey today.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had his twitter account hacked earlier today, with the hackers posting a string of racial messages and a false report of a bomb threat before he regained control of his account.
“A flurry of offensive messages including racial slurs were posted on Dorsey’s Twitter page” reported Sky News. The tweets have since been taken down by Twitter.
Some of the tweets posted while the account was hacked included “aqua up in this b****,” “Hitler is innocent,” “plugwalking to bed,” and “#ChucklingSquad get it trending for the Twitter password,” a possible reference to the group that hacked Dorsey’s account.
Dorsey’s hacked account, which had 4.2 million followers, also urged followers to follow another account, redacted by Sky News, “or Twitter HQ is blowing up.”
“Intel is there a bomb at Twitter HQ #ChucklingHella #ChucklingSquad.”
Twitter has come under intense scrutiny in recent months due to their ultra-liberal politics and their willingness to employ censorship to promote that particular ideology online.
