US President Trump said ‘Shouldn’t be too bad’ if my Twitter account is hacked
USA President Donald Trump, it “should not be too bad” if someone hacks his Twitter account that has 63.8 million followers.
Responding after hackers breached into Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s account last week and posted a flurry of rogue tweets including ethnic accusations, President Trump said journalists he is not bothered if his Twitter account @realDonaldTrump is compromised.
“Well, I hope they are not hacking my account, but truly, if they do, they are not going to learn too much more than what I put out, right? Shouldn’t be too bad,” Trump said a journalist when asked if he is concerned that his Twitter account could also be hacked.
In 2017, Trump’s Twitter account was deactivated for 11-minute by a grouchy Twitter customer service worker on his last day at the job.
In 2013, his Twitter account was hacked and the hackers tweeted a song from Lil’ Wayne’s verse in the Will.I.Am song, “Scream and Shout.”
President Trump succeeding tweeted that “My Twitter has been seriously hacked and we are looking for the perpetrators.”
On August 31, by gaining control of Dorsey’s number, hackers posted tweets through text messages on his Twitter account.
The micro-blogging platform next said that it guarded Dorsey’s account which matched a victim of ‘SIM swapping’ or ‘SIM jacking’ where a portable number is transferred to a different SIM card.
