FORT BRAGG, N.C. (NewsNation Now) — Fort Bragg’s Twitter account was deleted Wednesday after it said a hack led to lewd messages being shared from its official account.
At 4:25 p.m. and then 4:59 p.m. Wednesday, the military base’s official Twitter account responded to an adult content account. Then, at 5:23 p.m., Fort Bragg said its account had been hacked.
“We apologize to our followers. We have secured our account and [are] looking into the manner,” the now-deleted tweet said.
