Hackers attacked two of Facebook’s official Twitter accounts Friday night time.
The formal Twitter account @Fb and that of its messaging app, @Messenger, posted identical messages soon prior to seven p.m. Friday night stating, “Hi, we are O u r M i n e. Well, even Fb is hackable but at minimum their security greater than Twitter.”

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to The Hill the two accounts were hacked, indicating they had been attacked “through a third-party system.”
“As quickly as we have been designed informed of the problem, we locked the compromised accounts and are performing closely with our partners at Facebook to restore them,” the spokesperson claimed.
The messages ended up in the end eradicated from Twitter.
“Some of our corporate social accounts were briefly hacked but we have secured and restored accessibility,” a Facebook spokesperson told The Hill.
