BREAKING: Hackers Hijack Account Of Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey

The next in hitlist of Ourmine is none other than Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey. They have apparently hijacked his account and sent out the usual promotional tweet "Hey, it's OurMine,we are testing your security."

While that one was deleted immediately and currently the profile is clear of any odd behavior, Engadget reports that identical tweets continued to replace it for a given period of time. Even the Vine video which was available for a period of time is now gone.

Twitter has made no statement about the matter yet. Similar incidents have occured before when the same group of hackers compromised Sundar Pichai's Quora account as well as having a stint with Mark Zuckerberg too. Such practices beg to question whether hacking, even for exposing security flaws, ethical or not?
