CBS Twitter feeds were compromised

PTI New York | Updated on March 12, 2018

The Twitter accounts for two CBS programmes in the US have been compromised and suspended.

A CBS News spokeswoman confirms that tweets sent earlier in the afternoon from the “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours” Twitter handles saying their accounts were compromised are correct.

The tweets said the network was working with Twitter to investigate. Last night, both accounts were suspended and inaccessible.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The CBS spokeswoman would not comment any further.

Earlier in the day, tweets coming from the 60 Minutes account seemed farfetched, including one that claimed the US Government was “hiding the real culprit of the Boston bombing”.
