How can the PM protect the country, taunts hacker
An anonymous hacker reportedly hacked Thai prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s Twitter account on Sunday briefly.
The hacker use the account to tweet about Shinawatra’s alleged incompetence.
The hacker wrote, "This country is a business. We work for our allies, not for the Thai people. We work for those who support us, not those who differ with us."
Another tweet said, "Where are the opportunities for the poor? We use them, give them hope for votes so our own group can benefit."
According to the Guardian, the hacker ended the onslaught saying: "If she [Shinawatra] can’t even protect her own Twitter account, how can she protect the country? Think about it."
Government spokeswoman Thitima Chaisaeng has confirmed the news.
"We have been informed by the ICT [Information and Communication Technology] Ministry, and they are looking into who’s responsible for it. We don’t know who did it," Thitima said.
