  • Amazon’s security filed a report stating it believed the company’s Twitter account might have been hacked late last week after the Amazon’s public relations account posted tweets attacking liberal lawmakers, including Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
  • The Intercept’s Ken Klippenstein reports “staffers were so concerned about the ‘unnecessarily antagonistic’ tone that a security engineer filed a suspicious activity report, believing that the company’s social media account had been hacked.”
  • “The tweets in question do not match the usual content posted by this account, and doesn’t seem to match the quality careful wording, and doesn’t report the same source-label (the offending tweets all report ‘Twitter Web App’ instead of ‘Sprinklr’).”
