GETTR, the new social media platform set up by allies of former President Donald Trump, was been hacked on the day of its July 4 launch.
The platform’s most popular verified users, mostly former Trump aides, had their accounts compromised. GETTR’s official support page was also targeted.
Jason Miller, who founded the platform and was formerly a spokesperson to Trump, had his page taken over.
The accounts of Mike Pompeo, Steve Bannon, Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Harlan Hill, Sean Parnell, and the pro-Trump broadcaster Newsmax were also hacked.
All of these account’s profiles were changed to show the same message: “@JubaBaghdad was here πŸ™‚ ^^ free Palestine ^^.”
When asked, why the hacker decided to target the social media platform, he said it was “just for fun” and that it had been “easy” from a technical standpoint. (Contributing Source: Business Insider)
