Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey became a victim of his own platform on Friday when his account was reportedly hacked and began spewing vile posts.





Near 4 p.m. ET Dorsey’s account began sending out a string of tweets that were not only out of character but shocking. The tweets referred to a vague bomb threat, defended Hitler and used racial slurs.

Twitter communications director Brandon Borrman confirmed the hack, saying the social media company is currently investigating.

However, some are concerned this exposes a larger and more frightening problem at Twitter.
