Officials also found out that those posting from the account claimed to be from “Chuckling Squad”, which is a hacking group that also took control of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. And even various other high profile Twitter accounts.
In all of those hacks, similarly, racist and inflammatory tweets were sent by the accounts. During the hack on Mr Dorsey, the group used a neglected text messaging service to gain control of his account. That appeared to be traced back to a security issue with the CEO’s Twitter account.
After the hack, Twitter stated that:
“The phone number related to the hacked account was termed down due to a security oversight by the mobile provider,” Twitter posted from an official account after Mr Dorsey was hacked.
Twitter added and said:
The group has been targeting cyberattacks to gain access to other high-profile accounts only.
