The Huffington Post’s Twitter account got briefly hacked this Sunday, the media outlet ackowledged in a tweet, saying: “Sorry about that, Twitterverse! We know we’ve been hacked and are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.” During the disruption, offensive tweets made their way to the Huffington Post’s 1.4 million followers, many of whom quickly spotted the hack.
The hacker’s tweets weren’t particularly inspired. While one of the tweets he/she posted tried to impersonate the New York Post, which could have been funny, the following tweets were simply homophobic and racist.
