McDonald’s on Thursday said its corporate Twitter account had been hacked after a tweet went out mocking President Trump on Thursday.
Twitter told the organization that its record had been “compromised,” McDonald’s stated, including that it is as of now examining the hack. The organization has since secured its record, McDonald’s added.
Prior Thursday, McDonald’s conveyed a tweet on its official Twitter account calling Trump “a disgusting excuse of a president.” The post was quickly erased.
“@realDonaldTrump You are a disgusting excuse for a President, and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands,” the tweet read.
“Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this,” McDonald’s composed on Twitter, roughly an hour after the first tweet was sent.
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.
