Woman Whose Ferguson Tweet Led to Investigation Claims She Was Hacked

The grand jury deciding charges in the Michael Brown shooting is being investigated over a tweet one woman sent claiming to have information from a juror friend. Here’s the tweet, captured in a screengrab:

But CNN reached out to the woman in question, and she says she hasn’t used her account in months, so it was most likely hacked:

“I didn’t care for it because I just don’t get the whole Twitter thing,” she said, adding that someone had hacked her account and posted spam in the past…

“It had to have been hacked,” she said of her account. “I promise you I did not do any of this.”

Prosecutors are currently determining if there was any misconduct on the part of any of the jurors, based on that tweet.
