Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘Our account was hacked!’ Fort Bragg, home of US Special Operations, nukes account after posting sexually explicit tweets”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
The messages were “not the work of our admins,” the base said in a now-deleted tweet on Wednesday afternoon. “Our account was hacked. We apologize to our followers.” The entire account disappeared shortly thereafter.

It appears no one on Twitter seemed to buy the “we were hacked” excuse. Journalist Sophia Narwitz speculated that it’s far more likely the social media manager at Bragg forgot to log out of the base and into his (definitely his) personal account before simping for an e-girl.
The “I was hacked” defense didn’t work for C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, the ill-fated moderator of the canceled presidential debate. He was suspended last week, after admitting he falsely claimed to have been hacked in order to weasel out of tweeting at a critic of President Donald Trump.
The blunder and the overreaction to the embarrassment provided endless fodder for Twitter comedy, from gifs to memes.
