Twitter CEO’s account hacked: Twitter said the account of its CEO Jack Dorsey was hacked after a series of indecent and insulting messages were uploaded.

The racist tweet and suggestions about the explosives appeared at approximately 8 pm (local time) on the account of the founder of the brief message, @jack before it was deleted.

Some of the tweets contain #ChucklingSquad fences that are believed to be the identity of the intruders.

The messages contained racist titles including retweets of messages in support of Nazi Germany.

“We recognize that @jack is being hacked and are investigating what really happened,” a Twitter spokesman said.

Various comments flooded the platform questioning why Twitter’s founders did not protect their account using two-factor authentication.

The incident provided a disturbing picture that he himself failed to protect and secure his founders on the platform.

Following the Twitter CEO’s account hacked, Dorsey and Twitter promised to move more aggressively to clean up offensive and inappropriate content as part of the platform’s focus on safety.

“It’s probably the only way to get rid of racist tweets on this platform,” said a Twitter user.

Twitter recently announced that it will meet with a representative of the Manchester United team on calls for greater action in preventing racial slurs against footballers on social media platforms.
