Do you live in fear of the Syrian Electronic Army hacking your Twitter account? Or do you have a CEO with less than stellar social media skills? Or maybe you belong on our Twit List as someone who outsources “social” to interns and kinda deserve whatever public embarrassment you get.
But regardless of the scenario, a little Twitter security couldn’t hurt. For at the end of the day, even the most savvy social-ites are at risk.
And guess what? Hootsuite’s got yo’ back:
As the web cries out, yet again, after an attack by the Syrian Electronic Army, those of us fond of 80′s superhero shows feel like we’re watching an episode unfold. And it’s pretty fantastic.
Any minute now, the SuperFriends will come to the rescue.
Either that, or the hacks will just continue. It’s more fun to imagine the former. Ka-pow!
The Syrian Electronic Army, the group behind the April 23 hacking of the Associated Press Twitter account, and more recently CBS, hacked into the E! Online profile on Saturday.
The hackers tweeted a fake “exclusive” allegedly from Justin Bieber announcing that he was gay, which prompted more than 1,000 retweets and more than 350 favorites.
Did you see the tweet that came from the Associated Press Twitter account earlier today?
The tweet claimed The White House was under an attack of some sort and that the President Obama was injured. Coming so soon after the bombing at the Boston Marathon, many folks believed it and retweeted it.
