Facebook’s official Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked

Another day, another hack. 

Some of Facebook’s official social media accounts were temporarily hijacked by a firm that has compromised accounts belonging to other high-profile tech companies.

Late Friday evening, the hacking firm OurMine cracked into Facebook’s official handle on Twitter and, tweeted, “Hi, we are OurMine. Well, even Facebook is hackable but at least their security is better than Twitter.”

The firm says its agenda is to generate awareness about cyber vulnerabilities.

A digital tussle played out for the world to see as Facebook worked to remove content seemingly posted by OurMine. Almost as soon as the social networking site would take a post down, a new one would appear. The exchange lasted less than half an hour, The Verge reports. 

Security researcher Jane Manchung Wong captured the incident in real-time, uploading a screengrabbed video soon after it ended.
