Twitter Account of Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of Labour, Hacked

Twitter account of Jeremy Corbyn seemed to have been hijacked by a hacker who used to target David Cemeron and Trident with series of vulgar messages. The account of the Labour leader was apparently intruded little after 9pm on Sunday, after it started publishing a series of vulgar tweets.

The tweet denotes the British Trident program for the development and operation of nuclear weapons arsenal of the country. The hacker posted the message just after one minute about Mr. Cameron and immediately poked fun at the opposition of Mr.Corbyn regarding program of Trident Nuclear missile.

Within minutes, Twitter exploded with tweets about the seeming hacking with the post about David Cameron getting thousands of retweets in less than five minutes and "Davey Cameron" trending on the site.

Mr. Corbyn supports the disarmament of nuclear weapons and agrees with most of his Labour colleagues to withdraw support for the program.

The former Oasis star, who notably endorsed New Labour as they came to power in 1997, claims that the period of Tony Blair's opposition was amazing but confessed that he was disappointed with their official record. When he was asked by Sunday Times Style Magazine about his opinion, he replied that he does not like communism.

But he added: "I could never poll Tory as some unseen force would block me from casting my poll in the ballot box. Speaking as somebody from the left, I thought the New Labour years, coming up to 1997, were surprising".

Belfasttelegraph posted on 11th January, 2016, as saying "But then, the Labour Party demonstrated themselves to be 'Meet the new boss like old boss' and till that changes, I am not having it. The Tories don't care about the defenseless, and the communists don't care about the dream".

Mr. Corbyn's squad immediately regained the control of @jeremycorbyn account and removed the messages but the tweets were shared hundred times before being deleted and internet users were soon sharing screenshots of vulgar messages. Several users of Twitter also said that the hacker might be a Scottish due to phrases and language used.
