The Twitter account of Donald Trump has been hacked. He isn’t so upset about the incident as Jeremy Clarkson was earlier this week (Clarkson said he would kill the hacker), but he did reveal that they are “looking for the perpetrators.”After taking over the account, the hacker only published one tweet, quoting a Lil Wayne song: “These [expletive] think they classy, well that's the class I'm skippen.”
Shortly after, Trump managed to recover his account.
“My Twitter has been seriously hacked – and we are looking for the perpetrators,” he wrote.
“Twitter will soon be irrelevant if lowlifes are so easily able to hack into accounts,” he later added.
Truth be told, many of the hacks that affect celebrities are not possible because any lowlife is able to breach accounts, but because the victims set easy-to-guess passwords or fall for phishing scams.
Twitter has been warning customers to follow best practices if they don’t want to have their accounts hijacked. However, many public figures have other things to worry about.
Other recent noteworthy Twitter hacks are the ones that affected Burger King, Jeep and Anonymous.
