Miliband falls prey to sexy Twitter hacks

By politics.co.uk staff

Ed Miliband has become the latest politician to fall prey to a Twitter hack that sends out sexual explicit messages from the user’s account.

A tweet from the energy secretary’s account apparently read: “hhey, I’ve been having better sex and longer with this here,” followed by a link.

It was followed by a message from the real Mr Miliban, who wrote: “Oh dear it seems like I’ve fallen victim to Twitter’s latest ‘phishing’ scam.”

The earlier message has now been removed from the energy secretary’s history.

He is not the first politician this week to fall victim to hacker on Twitter.

Yesterday, leader of the house Harriet Harman said her account had been hacked and “bogus” messages sent to shadow prisons minister Alan Duncan.

“I’ve got to get back to him and tell him it wasn’t from me – I wouldn’t ever send a Tweet like that,” Mrs Harman said.
