Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s official Twitter handle was hacked on Wednesday evening, and filled with obscene tweets and now possibly the same hackers have launched an attack on the Congress party’s official Twitter account. Several abusive tweets were directed at Rahul Gandhi as well as the Congress party from their own verified account. Some of the tweets were full of profanity, while some of them threatened Gandhi and the party. The group calls themselves as the ‘legion’ and said, “…Legion shall prevail, justice shall strike!”. Even though a party’s team responsible for managing twitter account took quick action yesterday and deleted the distasteful tweets, the damage was further increased after the attack extended from Gandhi’s account to the party account now.
Yesterday Rahul Gandhi’s account was hacked at night, around 8:45 pm with tweets filled with profane words. Even his official twitter handle was changed from ‘@OfficeOfRG’. Today, also, there was a tweet from Rahul Gandhi’s account, which said, “To every one of you haters out there. I love all of you. You’re beautiful. Your hatred just doesn’t let you see it yet.” It is unclear who tweeted these words today, but in a shocking turn of events, the hackers even hacked INC’s twitter account and tweeted abusive words. They said ,”For every retard out there who thinks we have a political agenda – No, we don’t.” They even spoke to the common man and said, “Inspiration on the way for the common people – Fight the atrocious system till the day you die!”
While many Congress leaders condemned the cyber attack and alleged that only one ‘political camp’ could be behind the hack, but Twitterati showed little concern. Although the Congress VP’s account was hacked only for a few minutes yesterday, the damage was done and had the entire website buzzing.
