Donald Trump’s Twitter Gets “A Bit Weezy”
- When Hack Happened: February 2013
- Who Did It: Unknown
While the former U.S. President is known for being a Twitter troll (so much so they eventually banned him), he was not a politician in 2013. Trump would not announce his serious interest for President until a few years later, but even before this he was posting some “less than favorable stuff.” We’re not a political website, so we’ll leave it at that. Due to this, he was a target for many hackers on social media.
One managed to hack into Trump’s personal Twitter account and began posting as him. The best of the tweets involved using lyrics from a Lil Wayne song. For those unaware, Wayne’s rap work has some…let’s say “not safe for work” lyrics. So when Trump’s account tweeted “these h*** think they classy, well that’s the class I’m skippen,” people were concerned. The Trump team regained control about three hours later, but the hacker wasn’t caught.
