NFL’s Twitter hacked

Laremy Tunsil probably feels for Roger Goodell

4:00 PMOn June 7, 2016, at 12:36 p.m., NFL commissioner Roger Goodell died — at least according to the NFL’s official Twitter account.

The tweet was deleted, much to the Twitter hacker’s chagrin. But that didn’t stop the hacker. How about a few more hacked tweets for good measure?

 

Don’t worry, Goodell is still alive. The tweets were deleted within minutes. The #TwitterGate crisis was averted.

Tuesday’s hack wasn’t the first the NFL has recently experienced.

Just ask Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil, who was once projected to be the top pick in April’s NFL draft. Someone hacked his Twitter account 13 minutes before the draft started, and his dreams of being a top-five pick went up in smoke (Tunsil fell to Miami at the No. 13 selection). The former Ole Miss Rebel was publicly humiliated and vilified after an old video of him smoking marijuana with a gas mask was tweeted from his account and a conversation with a former college coach about the payment of bills was published on his Instagram. Tunsil lost millions as a result of these two hacks, a situation to which Goodell responded by saying, “… It’s all part of what makes the draft so exciting.”

The takeover of the NFL’s Twitter account surely added some excitement to a typical Tuesday afternoon. Only this time the league and its leader were on the receiving end of said excitement.
