Major news organisations including Reuters, Al Jazeera, CBS, NPR, the
BBC, The Guardian and the Associated Press have all made headlines in
the past year after hackers took over their Twitter accounts. The
attacks are always embarrassing and can negatively impact the reputation
of your news organisation, but the attacks can also cause panic and
real damage, as we saw recently.
The fake tweet posted to the AP Twitter account said:
Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured.
