John Podesta seriously needs a lesson on cyber security.
The Hillary Clinton campaign chairman had his Twitter account hacked on Wednesday night — less than a week after his personal emails were stolen and leaked online for all to see.
A whimsical tweet, which has since been deleted, was posted to his page during the hijacking — saying Podesta had sworn allegiance to the enemy.
“I’ve switched teams. Vote Trump 2016,” the message said.
Nearly 200 people shared the tweet before it was erased, according to CNET.
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill later confirmed to CNN that Podesta had once again been targeted by hackers. He said that Twitter had been informed of the intrusion and that they were working to secure his account.
Wednesday’s breach comes just days after Podesta was believed to have been hacked by Russian intelligence agencies, who then leaked his emails online.
FBI officials said last week that it appeared Russia had stolen the data and then made it public through WikiLeaks and another website called DCLeaks.com. An online persona known as “Guccifer 2.0” also leaked several emails, as well.
