New York Post Apologizes After Hack Results in ‘Heil President Trump’ Mobile Alerts

The New York Post was the victim of what looks like an April Fool’s Day prank. Someone, somewhere hacked into the system that sends push notifications in their mobile app, and the results were…interesting:

The Post soon issued an apology via both Twitter and the notification system, showing that they had regained control of the latter:
