FIFA World Cup and Sepp Blatter’s Twitter accounts hacked


The Twitter accounts for the FIFA World Cup and President of FIFA, Sepp Blatter, was hacked on Monday afternoon. The tweets from the FIFA World Cup account alleged that Blatter was stepping down amidst corruption charges. On Blatter’s timeline, a photo was posted with Blatter claiming to have taken money from a Qatari prince.

A group called the “Syrian Electronic Army” took responsibility for hacking the accounts. A Syrian embassy was recently opened in Qatar in opposition from the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.


Blatter SHOULD resign because he is an amoral creep. Somehow the idea of corruption charges don't surprise me, even if they are the invention of  the 'Syrian Electronic Army'. And isn't the world a better place now that they are in it?
