The official Fornite Twitter account had been hacked earlier today after the hacker left some funny tweets for Fornite fans. Although, its still unclear how hackers took over its Twitter account in the first place.
According to reports, it appears that the hacker was also part of the Fortnite community. Its been a few hours now that Epic Games had gain access back to the twitter account. However, Epic Games hasn’t released any official statements regarding the hack.
As epic games gained access to their twitter account, they immediately removed all tweets made by the hacker. Here is the first tweet made by the hacker:
The hacker also tweeted his our Twitter profile, requesting Fortnite fans to follow him on @cal086. A screenshot of that tweet can be found below.
That being said, here are a few more tweets that the hacker made that were really weird.
According to Fortnite BR Leaks and News, the hacker may have gained access into an employees account that allowed him to take over Fortnites Twitter account via TweetDeck. Based on the screenshots we listed above, it does look like the hacker has used TweetDeck to publish those tweets.
Judging by the fact they were tweeting from TweetDeck, they probably got into some employees account that has access to it, as one account can have control over all others
