— The Associated Press (@AP) April 23, 2013
The account was suspended moments later.
Politico reports White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday the tweet was “obviously false.”
The unconfirmed hacking of the AP’s Twitter account comes after CBS News’ Twitter account was hacked Saturday, according to Deadline Hollywood. Hackers tweeted the U.S. and Obama were “Shamelessly in Bed with Al-Qaeda” from the account of CBS News and their newsmagazine, 60 Minutes.
