RTE on Twitter Hack “were Irish accounts hacked?”

Published Categorized as Uncategorized
RTE “The company (Twitter) said they could not comment specifically on whether Irish accounts were affected by the hacking incident” So RTE asked were Irish accounts involved? What a silly question. Yes they were. Mine too. Twitter doesn’t have a database for Ireland.

RTE “Both newspapers (The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal) reported this week that their computer systems had been infiltrated by China-based hackers, likely to monitor media coverage the Chinese government deems important.” The hackers would use Google to search this coverage, except Google is blocked in China.
