Swedish Social Democrats' Twitter account hacked
Sweden's ruling Social Democratic Party is investigating after its official Twitter account suffered a hacking attack overnight. Early on Monday morning social media users noticed a string of odd tweets sent from the Social Democratic Party's Twitter account. More than 20 tweets on a range of topics were shared before the party regained control of the account. "We contacted the police immediately and are working with Twitter," a party spokesperson told the BBC. "Attacks on political parties are attacks on free speech and democracy. We do everything we can to prevent these kind of intrusions." The account shared a screenshot of a direct message it claimed to have sent to Social Security Minister Annika Strandhall.
