These are scary times, social media represent our own voice and identity, but just like this, they can be hacked and robbed to yourself. Tame Impala, Bon Iver, Keith Richards and many other musicians’ twitter accounts were hijacked on Sunday afternoon, and the worst thing happened as the hackers tweeted terrorism threats and racial slurs:
‘I have 15 C4’s in my bag and 12 pipebombs in my bag also Im going to blow up one of your planes in 30 minutes!! @jetblue’ tweeted Tame Impala account
‘Im so glad Muhammad ali ahahahahahah’ tweeted Bon Iver’s
The tweets have now been deleted, but it also happened to the least expected guy, as Facebook cofounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts were also hacked! Apparently the incident would come from password problems, and it could be due to a leak of Linkedin passwords which occurred last month.
If Zuckerberg can’t prevent this, what anyone else can possibly do? Isn’t he the guy who knows about internet security and hard-to-guess passwords?
But this is just the surface, apparently the hacking spread to a lot of artists, Twenty one pilots’ Tyler Joseph, Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes and Pierce The Veil’s Jaime Preciado have had their Twitter accounts hacked too according to Alternative Press. The hackers even used Tenacious D’s account to announce Jack Black’s death, which is not funny: ‘WE had our Twitter account hacked. We can assure you that Jack is ALIVE and WELL and that this was a sick “prank”.’ tweeted Tenacious D after the incident
And this demonstrates one thing, that these celebrities, Zuckerberg included, used the same password for multiple accounts, something we all do whereas this is apparently a nono on the internet! So don’t worry if your tweeter feed looked a bit strange over the weekend, the accounts of your favorite artists and celebrities were probably hacked.
