Mastodon’s Twitter account hacked

Posted by on July 17, 2014

On Wednesday night, Mastodon’s Twitter account appeared to have been hacked by someone posting racist and homophobic slurs and offensive images. A user named calling himself SleepTheGod as part of a collective took over the site at about 9:30, posting images of 9/11 and engaging users that made comments about the site being hacked. The hacker also made anti-Semitic remarks and disparaging comments towards African Americans. At press time (10amET), the account remains hacked, but a regular tweet that was most likely scheduled before the hacker took over was the most recent post.
