Twitter's explanation on the recent hack and scam marathon is assuming that the third marketing apps were the ones agreed by hackers.
Following the recent hacks to some famous brands’ Twitter stories that happened following within a short period, Twitter explained that the hacks didn’t appear on their platform.
The social media platform, instead, pointing out to third-party apps meaning used by the brands to maintain their social posts, without considering in particular which apps they refer to.
In their email to The Next Web, the company’s spokesperson affirmed that the recent attacks encountered by Target and Google were getting from their agreed third-party social media control software.
One of the offerings, Target also “revised” their report, from initially stating “our Twitter account was inappropriately accessed” to explaining that the hackers never entered their Twitter account directly; instead, they managed to gain illegal access to their social media marketing app to post content on the part of Target.
Even though the social platform has been losing the battle against spam bots and cybercriminals, the description has anyhow made the recent events more fashion sense.
