Hacked AP Twitter Account Reports Of Two Explosions At White House, Obama Injured

Tyler Durden's picture


Update 2 - Obama is fine. In other news, it may be time for @federalreserve to change their twitter passwored from QE4EVA to something more secret.

Update: yup, AP was hacked. Let's hear it for Twitter moving markets.

Did someone just hack the AP twitter account? If not, this is not good:

As we speak, news outlets around the world are freaking out trying to verify this.


Edit: Apparently the AP Twitter account has been suspended. So, false alarm.

I hope you have a trusty mattress. I was thinking DS...Sprott probably has a massive amount of physical silver. If they can somehow crack him open like a coconut, all that physical comes pouring out into somebody's hands. Like you said this is 2008 for commodities and Sprott would be the equivelant of a major Primary Dealer, no?

Not sure fonzy but yes, if they break Sprott, his inventory will have to be liquidated. I dont know if you know that you could buy physicals directly from Sprott at sprottmoney.com. I made purchases there but it looks like their silver inventory is a bit cheaper than from other places I check (lower mark-up on the Eagles, Koalas). Maybe they need the cash, I dont know if sprottmoney and Sprott Asset Mgmt are related but I am sure Eric is getting hit from all sides right now.

smallbiz, good for you. I suggest people GTFO. I mean look at how the markets tanked and now its back to where it was...its obvious that this market has NO MORE INTEGRITY and NO MORE LIQUIDITY. I would have thought that any human who owns stocks would be dumping after that shitshow but now I know that the markets has NO HUMANS left, its all fuckin algos.

News-reading algos can detect and instadump in the absence of foreknowledge.  Not to discount that possibility, but this may just be a "shit happens when your "market" is controlled by relatively simplistic bots" situation.  Certainly a good reminder that investing or even day trading this "market" is a great way to get what's left of your fiat denominated wealth stolen from you.

" News-reading algos can detect and instadump in the absence of foreknowledge.  "



I can't believe there's no cross-checking in the algos to verify something as simple (and as important) as the TIC's (Teleprompter In Chief) location against 'events' like this  ... isn't he going to be in TEXAS today viewing a fertilizer factory? 


(or what remains of one anyway)

Dadoom Cham! Anyway, the Chief Teleprompter walks into a bar he says,
"I'm the Prez now gimme a Brewski."
The bartender squints and says, That's not what the other teleprompter said."
The Chief Teleprompter Says, "Whoa, Deja Vu!"
The bartender squints and says, "I've been hacked!"
Six beers later, the Chief Teleprompter goes blank and passes out.

Then Banghazi Happens.

What's with so many e-mail and social media accounts getting hacked lately?  It's not that hard to have a strong password.  


Either that or it's a bunch of complicit actors taking part in a propaganda effort to goad people into supporting more internet regulation.

Hard? I'd say it's impossible in all but theory.

There are passwords where I'm at that are twenty years old, and can't be found (let alone changed) until we replace ALL of our enterprise software over the next three years.

Then there's all of those damn Access databases and Excel spreadsheets that pull from them. I'm trying to upgrade a system now, where the db is linked to three other dbs sitting on peoples' workstation hard drives. They thought they were cool since the main db is on the network which is backed up nightly.
