Now attempts being made to hack Right Wing accounts on Twitter?

Recently many Right Wing or right-leaning users on Twitter were worried about their accounts getting suspended by Twitter India after prominent Twitter user Sonam Mahajan’s account and backup account both got suspended. Now it looks like they have to deal with another headache which is a hacking attempt of their accounts. Even before this, we had seen cases of right-leaning accounts getting suspended.

Yesterday, many Twitter users posted pictures claiming that some people were attempting to hack their accounts.. Some even blamed AAP supporters for it as there are long been talks about accounts posting anti-AAP content getting suspended on Twitter.

One user had also experienced a similar attempt on his Facebook account some days back

The common threads in all the above cases were that all the accounts are known to mock and ridicule AAP and Congress, and many, though not all, are generally pro-BJP and pro-Modi. Furthermore, many of the above accounts reported hacking attempts in the wee hours of the morning between 5-6 am. All such accounts getting targetted at around the same time can’t be coincidence, and it shows that this could have been a ideologically motivated targetted attack on all of them.

What makes this move more desperate is the fact that many of these Twitter users are comedians first and political commentators later, and for the most part lampoon AAP and left-liberals if it ensures a good laugh. Plus as almost all affected accounts are right-leaning, the support from Twitter India might be precariously low.
