Hours after abusive tweets were posted on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account; his party’s account was also hacked.
A dozen of abusive tweets were posted on the @INCIndia account on Thursday morning, until the party regained control of the page in around half an hour.
One of the tweets posted on the account said that a “full dump” of Congress emails will be posted.
“…Stay tuned for Christmas special. We have enough info to drop your party down to shreds,” it said.
“For every retard out there who thinks we have a political agenda – No, we don’t,” one of the tweets read.
“Corrupt political party trying to (expletives) around with innocent hackers, you think you’re cool bro?”
“Remember, we are legion, do not (expletives) with us!” it added.
Last night, hackers group called ‘legion’ posted multiple abuses on the Twitter account of Rahul Gandhi, removed his profile picture and changed the title from @OfficeOfRG to Retarded Gandhi.
Meanwhile, Congress has filed a complaint with the Cyber cell of Delhi Police on the hacking of its Vice President’s twitter account.
The complaint was filed by party’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, demanding strict action against those behind the hacking.
After the hacking, Congress raised questions on the digital safety of all Indians and said it reflects disturbing insecurities of the prevalent “fascist culture” in the country.
While the official Congress Twitter account has 1.38 million followers as of Thursday, @OfficeofRG account is followed by 1.22 million people on the popular micro-blogging platform.
