Twitter says there is no sign Maxine Waters’ account was hacked as she claimed

Thursday morning, Rep. Maxine Waters stunned many when she wrote on Twitter “I have been hacked and my Twitter account has been erased. I know who has done this. I will take care of this. M Waters.”

However Reuters reported “Twitter Inc said on Tuesday it did not find any signs that U.S. Representative Maxine Waters’ Twitter account had been hacked, after an earlier tweet sent from the California Democrat’s verified profile claimed the account had been erased.”

A Twitter spokesperson said “we can’t comment on the Tweet, but, as is standard, we have open lines of communication with her office and have worked with them to ensure the account is secure. At this time, we’ve identified no signs of account compromise.”
