NBC News Twitter Account Hacked

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

NBC News Twitter account, on Friday
afternoon, was hacked. Messages
detailing a false report of a plane
crash on the site of where New
York's twin towers were destroyed
September 11, 10 years ago, were
spread.

The Script Kiddies are taking
credit for hacking the Twitter
feed of NBC News. A number of
tweets like the following were
posted.

"Breaking News! Ground Zero has
just been attacked. Flight 5736
has crashed into the site,
suspected hijacking. more as the
story develops."

The hacking came just two days
before America marks its 10th
anniversary of the 2001 terrorist
attacks.

"We are working with Twitter to
correct the situation and sincerely
apologize for the scare that could
have been caused by such reckless
and irresponsible act," NBC News
in a statement.

The Twitter account was later
suspended, but the false tweets were
sent quickly per reports.

The Business insider called it a
"disgusting 9/11 prank."

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.


She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.


Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
