Hackers Break Into Associated Press Twitter Account, Post Tweet About White House Explosions


Hackers broke into the Associated Press Twitter account on Tuesday and posted a tweet claiming two explosions had rocked the White House, injuring the president.

The AP responded to the incident by suspending its account and saying it was trying to fix the problem.

The tweet has since been taken down.

This is the latest Twitter account from a media organization to be targeted. This past weekend, accounts for ’60 Minutes’ and ’48 Hours’ were also hacked.

The AP tweet had an immediate impact by causing the Dow Jones to tumble 140 points.
