Twitter is Never Safe, Square Enix Just Learned.

Hackers are every where nowadays and it seems Twitter is one of their favorite playgrounds. Just yesterday Square Enix Europe’s twitter was yet another victim. 

The hack occurred in the late morning UK time and was as quick and vicious as a stampede of Chocobos. The hackers quickly began to block the accounts fans causing them to shred nearly 100k followers in a few hours. 

A small hacker group took the credit and also took to the account for Just Cause 3 to lash out at rival production houses such as EA. The group went simply by the hash tag #CYBERWOLFGANG. 

Other companies need to take head and place a priority on their PR staff to manage their twitter feed with utmost scrutiny and security.
