As Twitchy reported, the Associated Press’ Twitter account was hacked today. The Dow plummeted moments after the hacked tweet, which claimed reports of explosions at the White House, went out. Hilarity, of course, ensued as Twitter users began to mock the AP.
Hardest hit? David Sirota and Anthony Weiner. Remember, Salon’s David Sirota hoped the Boston bombers would be “white males.” And disgraced junk-tweeter Anthony Weiner needs no further introduction. Take it away, Twitter!
Ouch! That burns, doesn’t it, Anthony Weiner? Ah, hindsight!
