Rahul Gandhis Twitter Handle Hacked

The official Twitter handle of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi appeared to have been hacked on Wednesday evening. A series of abusive tweets were sent out from the handle to its 1.21 million followers.

The handle seems to have been hacked by a group called ‘legion’, according to one of the tweets.

The tweets that did not revolve around demonetisation were outright abusive towards Rahul and his family.
Some of the tweets were being deleted a short while after they were posted. However, whoever hacked the account soon changed the bio of the handle.

Rahul Gandhi does not tweet personally, and his handle is managed by his office. His team seemed to be in a tug-of-war with the hackers over the comments being posted out.
