For the United States President Donald Trump it “should not be too bad” if someone hacks his official Twitter handle that has over 63.8 million followers.
Responding after account hackers broke into Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s official handle and posted a number of rogue tweets including racial slurs, President Trump told sources that he is tension free of his Twitter account @realDonaldTrump is compromised.
When asked if he worries that his Twitter account could be hacked, President Trump was quoted saying, “Well, I hope they are not hacking my account, but actually, if they do, they are not going to learn too much more than what I put out, right? Shouldn’t be too bad.”
In 2017, the United States President’s Twitter handle was deactivated for about 11 minutes by a dissatisfied customer service worker on his last day at work.
In 2013, President Trump’s Twitter handle was hacked and hackers tweeted a lyric from Lil’ Wayne’s verse in the Will.I.Am song, “Scream and Shout.”
