In a string of strange security breaches, Tame Impala, Bon Iver and Keith Richards’ Twitter accounts were all infiltrated on Sunday afternoon. The hackers began by simply encouraging users to follow their personal social media accounts, but they soon took a swift nosedive into plane bomb threats, racial slurs, insensitive comments about the late Muhammad Ali, offensive Twitter handle changes (@boniver became @ihavelegcancer) and messages directed at Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey. The tweets have all been deleted, but the screenshots are below.
