2 Facebook accounts on Twitter hacked

Hackers took over two of Facebook’s official Twitter accounts tonight.
The official Twitter accounts for @Facebook and its messaging app @Messenger posted identical messages just before 7 p.m. reading in part, “Hi, we are O u r M i n e. Well, even Facebook is hackable but at least their security better than Twitter.”
A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to POLITICO the accounts “were hacked through a third-party platform.”
“As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised accounts and are working closely with our partners at Facebook to restore them,” the spokesperson added.
In a statement, a Facebook spokesperson said, “Some of our corporate social accounts were briefly hacked but we have secured and restored access.”
