Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s Account Hacked

Jack Dorsey

The Twitter account of Jack Dorsey, Twitter's chief executive officer, appears to have been hacked in an embarrassing security lapse for the social network.

The tweets included messages such as "Hitler is innocent" and, using a vulgarity, asked "bald skeleton head tramp", apparently referring to Dorsey, to unsuspend certain accounts.

The compromised account identified the source of the hack as a group known as the Chuckling Squad, and posted multiple offensive messages starting at 3:44 p.m ET, including racial slurs directed at African Americans.

Twitter themselves published a statement on the hack, writing, "We're aware that Jack was compromised and investigating what happened".

A number of high-profile figures have seen their accounts get hacked in the past few years, and there's some concern this afternoon from many users wondering about how the Twitter CEO's account himself was successfully targeted. "Hopefully Jack and Twitter will improve safety measures this weekend".

The messages - some posted directly by the @jack account, and others retweeted from other accounts - used the n-word and made anti-Semitic comments referencing the Holocaust. As of 1:15 PST (about 30 minutes after the first tweet) the offending tweets have been deleted.

The Twitter CEO is still dating model Raven Lyn Corneil but just sold the LA mansion he bought her in 2018, according to Page Six.
