UPDATED with more info: The Twitter feed of the social media platform’s co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey has been hacked, with the perpetrators posting a bomb threat and racial slurs among several posts that were quickly taken down.
Twitter confirmed the breach Friday, then said later in the day that “the account is now secure, and there is no indication that Twitter’s systems have been compromised.” No other information was available.
According to reports, a group calling itself #ChucklingSquad claimed responsibility for the hack, which seemed to begin just after 3:30 PM ET.
