Fire Department’s Twitter Account Hacked

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The Colorado Springs Fire Department’s Twitter account was apparently one of hundreds hijacked amid a diplomatic feud between Turkey and Germany and the Netherlands.

The department said Wednesday that its account had been hacked and asked people to ignore tweets posted between midnight and 6 a.m.

KRDO-TV captured an image of the department’s account which shows the cover photo changed to the Turkish flag and an avatar that appears to be a pin from the Ottoman Empire.
