In an email to Poynter, Wall Street Journal spokesperson Colleen Schwartz says “We believe the @WSJD, @WSJEurope, @WSJAfrica, @WSJVintage Twitter accounts have been compromised,” and that the Journal is “still investigating.” (I inserted the links in the quote above.)
The Journal said on Twitter Tuesday that some of its accounts “may have been compromised.”
We are aware some of our Twitter accounts may have been compromised. We are looking into it.
