Rahul Gandhi’s twitter account was hacked and profane content was posted from it- Indian Express

The Twitter account of India's main opposition Congress party and its leader Rahul Gandhi have been repeatedly targeted by hackers.
 
A tweet on Gandhi's timeline addressed his "haters" and was retweeted by the official account of the Congress party.
 
The new message appeared shortly after a series of abusive tweets on both accounts were deleted.
 
Gandhi has said the hacking reflects badly on India's digital security.
 
He also used the incident to question the government's push to get people to bank online.
 
Online payments and digital wallets have been pushed as alternatives to cash transactions ever since India banned 500 and 1,000 rupee notes last month in a bid to curb corruption.
