Twitter Founder's Account Hacked

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has been hacked on his official account. The hacker tweeting from Dorsey's account Friday sent racist tweets to his four-point-two-million followers. The tweets were up for about half-an-hour before the social networking service took them down.

This comes after Dorsey tweeted about cracking down on hate speech and abuse on the social media platform. Twitter is investigating the incident, but how the hackers succeeded was apparently, pretty simple. Word is, the hackers got in through Twitter’s text-to-tweet service, operated by the acquired service Cloudhopper.
