Earlier today the Twitter profile of the company’s chief financial officer, Anthony Noto, was hacked.
The account began tweeting spammy links at a number of seemingly random users, directing them to the flashscore.ro website.
Business Insider screen capped a range of the tweets, which you can see below.
This isn’t the first embarrassing Twitter incident for Noto, who joined the firm last year. Back in November, the CFO accidentally openly-tweeted what was assumed to be a private direct message revealing Twitter’s plans to buy a third party.
Twitter has now resumed control of Noto’s account and deleted the offending tweets. At the time of writing nobody has come forward to claim responsibility for the hack. Whatever the outcome, it’s more egg-on-face for Noto.
