The Most Followed Person on Twitter Has Been Hacked

Entertainment // Social Media // United States

Yesterday, pop singer Katy Perry’s Twitter account spewed offensive remarks and tweeted at rival star Taylor Swift that Perry missed her. 

In addition, Perry’s record-breaking account, with 89 million followers, tweeted a link to a track on SoundCloud, which is believed to be an unreleased Katy Perry song called Witness.

The tweets have since been deleted.

The hacker seems to be the Romanian-based Twitter user @sw4ylol.

The @sw4ylol account tweeted a takedown notice from SoundCloud and an image of a copyright claim from Perry's Universal Music.
