The Mayor's account was hacked ...

ISC2 HQ is in Tampa.  And, in a couple of weeks they'll have a civic election.

 

So, somebody hacked the mayor's Twitter account and sent sexist and racist tweets, pr0n, and a fake warning about a missile attack.

 

City Hall eventually got the account back.

 

Somebody from HQ wanna go down the street and talk to the mayor about password strength?

 

(Or, possibly the @rslade account has been hacked and somebody is posting "controversial political statements" ...)

Re: The Mayor's account was hacked ...

Let’s advise elected officials that they are better off using MFA to verify their identity to services like twitter - this will help them along side the string passwords/handle properly advice - unless of course they are running on a platform of random pr0n, hate and crime, then can I Guess carry on subcontracting to vandals using weak passwords.

Would be my guess.  It's the yellow post-it note stuck to the underside of the Dell keyboard because I was passed over for a promotion hack.
