Oops: Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater’s Twitter account hacked

The Twitter account of powerful Muslim Brotherhood deputy leader Khairat el-Shater was hacked last night. More than 11 hours later, tweets linking to the Twitter account of hacker @T4ct and the Facebook account of “Anonymous Middle East” remain on his account. One of the tweets includes the message “TacticiaN WAS hErE.”

The Islamist leader’s Twitter avatar was changed to a photo of Gaber “Jika” Salah, the teen anti-Morsi protester who was killed during clashes with Egyptian police last month.

In addition, el-Shater’s Twitter bio has reportedly been changed to include a pro-revolution message.

    If I got ahold of someone’s twitter like that, I’d post messages that were at least somewhat credible enough to be believed.

    I’d just link to a bunch of porn sites, and watch his followers’ heads explode.

      Nah, he’s already lost credibility for allowing someone to gain unauthorized access to his account and posting a pic of an anti-Morsi protester. Proof positive that passwords need to stay as complicated as possible (uppercase/lowercase letters, numbers, special characters) and avoid using anything that could be found in a dictionary (or easily guessed).

      Actually, Islamists are porn fanatics. And it’s not just the free stuff, but the paid websites.
