Toddler Tweets 'Cryptic' Message From United States Strategic Command Twitter Account

In a tweet from the United States Strategic Command, a cryptic message read on March 29 at 8:48 a.m.: “;l;;gmlxzssaw,”

The tweet from the department in charge of nuclear launch codes sent the internet into a frenzy. Some had tweeted that these were the nuclear launch codes. Others joked on Twitter, saying that a cat had walked across the keyboard and that it was good to know that USSTRATCOM were cat people.  According to The Daily Dot, USSTRATCOM’s communications manager’s child had gotten ahold of his laptop and tweeted out the “cryptic” message.

USSTRATCOM responded by saying, “The Command’s Twitter manager, while in a telework status, momentarily left the Command’s Twitter account open and unattended...His very young child took advantage of the situation and started playing with the keys and unfortunately, and unknowingly, posted the tweet.”

USSTRATCOM went on to say, “Absolutely nothing nefarious occurred, i.e., no hacking of our Twitter account...The post was discovered and notice to delete it occurred telephonically.”

The response came after a FOIA request was made on behalf of Daily Dot tech writer Mikael Thalen who tweeted out: “Filed a FOIA request with U.S. Strategic Command to see if I could learn anything about their gibberish tweet yesterday. Turns out their Twitter manager left his computer unattended, resulting in his “very young child” commandeering the keyboard.”
