The Twitter account of Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s chief executive officer, appears to have been hacked on Friday.
At 12.44pm Pacific time (8:44pm Nigerian time) on Friday, the account @jack began publishing a series of tweets that appear to be from the hackers, who self-identified as “Debug, Corey, NuBLoM, Joe, Owen, & Aqua” or the “ChucklingSquad”. The rapid stream of tweets included racial slurs and profanity and a reference to “a bomb at Twitter HQ”.
The tweets also shared a link to a Discord server – a type of internet chat room – where users appeared to be boasting about the hack in the moments after the account was hijacked.
Twitter’s communications team issued a statement via Twitter.
We’re aware that @jack was compromised and investigating what happened.
