A group that goes by #ChucklingSquad has apparently hacked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s account. Some news outlets are reporting various different tweets, and one claims the tweets were quickly removed, but as of the publishing of the linked article saying they were gone, some of the offensive and racially charged tweets were still showing up on @jack.
The Washington Post also reported it here:
Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey’s account was hacked Friday, prompting a tweet stream of obscenities and shout-outs before the company removed them.
The strange stream of tweets from @Jack started Friday afternoon, including racial slurs, retweets and even a bomb threat directed at Twitter’s headquarters.
One image with examples and the bad words covered can be seen below. Some of the things posted on the @jack account were too much for us to be comfortable posting here, but it was racially charged and very offensive.

Much speculation abounds as to the privacy of everyone who uses the internet, as one verified Twitter user posted:
“If the Twitter CEO’s account can be hacked, then none of us is safe. What a shxxshow!”

This is a developing story. As of the publishing of this story, it does appear as though all the offending tweets were indeed finally removed from the @jack account that were posted by the hacker.
