According to Donald Trump, his Twitter account was “seriously hacked” this morning. Trump tweeted out the Lil Wayne lyric, “These hoes think they classy, well that’s the class I’m skippen” to his more than 2 million followers and it was retweeted hundreds of times before he decided to delete it.
Twenty minutes later, Trump had apparently regained control of his account, tweeting an ominous warning to the hacking perpetrators.
If a group like the one that recently turned Burger King’s Twitter feed into a McDonald’s ad and turned Jeep’s into one for Cadillac actually did hack Trump’s account, it seems like they would have done more damage than one relatively tame rap lyric. Was this really a malicious hacking incident? Or just a careless mistake by whoever Trump has running his Twitter account? Or maybe Trump’s just using the current Twitter hacking craze to drum up more publicity for himself now that his lawsuit feud with Bill Maher seems to have died down. What do you think?
