New York Post Says Twitter Feed Hacked After Fake China Tweets

Friday, 16 Jan 2015 01:49 PM

The New York Post said its Twitter account was hacked after messages were posted citing bogus breaking news about U.S. interest-rate policy and China firing missiles on a U.S. Navy ship.

The newspaper’s Sunday business editor tweeted “Our Twitter feed has been hacked.” A representative for the newspaper, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., didn’t have an immediate comment. Twitter didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

One tweet said “#BREAKING: Chinese anti-ship missile fired at USS George Washington.” Another tweet said: “BREAKING: Federal Reserve head Yellen announces bail-in emergency meeting, rumored negative rate to be set at 4pm EST today.”

The tweets were being deleted within minutes of being posted.
