Janelle Griffith and Ben Collins, NBC News:
The official Twitter account of Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of the social media platform, was hacked on Friday.
One of the first tweets sent from his “compromised” account was the N-word. Another, sent minutes later, praised Hitler.
More than a dozen racist or otherwise offensive original tweets were sent within 20 minutes from the account.
It would be pretty terrifying if there were a world leader that used their Twitter account as a primary means of broadcasting barely-literate official announcements, racist commentary, and off-the-cuff nonsense that swings markets worldwide.
That would be scary, wouldn’t it?
