British Airways 'Twitter Account Hacked'
British Airways has launched an investigation after its Twitter account was apparently hacked and an offensive message retweeted.
The official BA Twitter account seemingly retweeted an offensive and racist message on Saturday afternoon.
After the offensive retweet was deleted, staff at the airline then tweeted an apology.
It said: "Apologies for the last RT. We are sorry for any offence caused and are investigating how this may have happened."
Within minutes, hundreds of Twitters users resent the retweet and later more than 160 followers had retweeted the apology.
The BA account has more than 210,000 followers.
what do you think?
Does anyone know what the offensive bit said?
Expect us lol
Bought the 'mail on sunday' today. Very pissed off. 69% ADVERTS. JUST THINK, I PAID TO READ ADVERTS. Where's the news. What a DROSS paper. Never again. Page 2 and 3 one big sainsburys add. So amatuerish. Most of what can be read was written five days ago. MORE LIKE 'THE HISTORY ON SUNDAY'.
