Twitter Boss Hacked – level 1

04-09-2019 15:00

Jack Dorsey is the boss of Twitter. He also uses Twitter. He has around 4 million followers. Someone hacks his account.

Twelve tweets come from his account within 20 minutes. Some tweets are racist. One tweet says that there is a bomb at Twitter’s office building in San Francisco. Another tweet tells people to follow an account or else a bomb explodes at Twitter’s offices.

The shocking tweets go down in less than an hour. Later Twitter says that the account and all of Twitter are safe again.

Difficult words: account (a profile, your name on Twitter), hack (be able to use another person’s account), racist (something racist shows hate against people who have a different color of skin than you).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
