Jack Dorsey's ongoing mission to raise the politeness of public discourse suffered a setback on Friday when an anonymous hacker took over his Twitter account for 20 minutes retweeting @taytaylov3r's claim that "Nazi Germany did nothing wrong" ,
Twitter, As you probably know, if you've spent time there, it has an ongoing, well documented problem with Nazis, White Supremacists, and other extremists. It looks like taytaylov3r's account has since been suspended.
The hijacking of the company's CEO's account apparently began around 15:45 Eastern Time when the account of @jack fired nearly two dozen tweets and retweets. Some of the tweets were tagged with #ChucklingSquad, the name of an obvious group of hackers on their way to taking over an account this week. Prior to Dorsey, they met numerous influencers, including Zane Hijazi the popular podcast Zane and Heath and Anthony Brown playing BigJigglyPanda . Chuckling Squad also appears to have sent compromised and mocked messages to YouTuber's account Etika, who was found dead in June.
This may only make the @jack hack the latest and best-known in a series of acquisitions. Twitter confirmed the incident in a tweet – if anyone believed that Dorsey deliberately undertook bombing from his account – and said the company "investigated what happened".
