“This afternoon the Fort Bragg Twitter account was hacked and a string of inappropriate tweets were posted to the account,” one of the Army units housed at Fort Bragg tweeted. Fort Bragg, North Carolina, is one of the Army’s largest bases, housing more than 50,000 military personnel.
“When made aware, the Fort Bragg social media team deleted the tweets & temporarily moved the account offline,” the tweet continued. “The matter is under investigation.”
The now-removed replies were responses to a lewd message and naked picture posted by another Twitter account featuring pornographic content.
CNN has reached out to Twitter for comment about the alleged hack.
The Twitter accounts, along with those of Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos and Mike Bloomberg, posted similar tweets soliciting donations via Bitcoin to their verified profiles.
