The Syrian Electronic Army Just Hacked Another Big Twitter Account

By Casey Chan on at

Even with Twitter adding two-factor authentication, the Thomson Reuters' Twitter account @thomsonreuters has been hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army. If you remember, the Syrian Electronic Army has been responsible for hacking the Twitter accounts of all sorts of companies and even Sky.

The Syrian Electronic Army used the @thomsonreuters account to tweet out pictures of pro-Assad political cartoons. The cartoons are not exactly of the Sunday Morning variety, so expect to see gore, blood, guts and all around distasteful images. BuzzFeed rounded up the offensive tweets made by the Syrian Electronic Army here.

Twitter has suspended the @thomsonreuters Twitter account for the time being. [BuzzFeed]
