Such has been the conversation regarding an alleged ‘hack’ into Trump’s Twitter account. Well, it was not really a hack if you guessed the password correctly, is it? Oh, it is? What if you are a researcher? Well, the Dutch Police want a glimpse of what you saw before pressing charges, Victor Gevers.
The first advice you get when opening your first online account is to never use a predictable phrase or word as your password. Well, according to Dutch researcher Victor Gevers, Trump never listened. And when has the realDonaldTrump ever listened? The researcher who announced last month that he’d practically ‘walked into’ Donald Trump’s Twitter account said he’d guessed the password as ‘MAGA2020!’ But nobody is accepting his claim. There was no two-factor authentication! Yeah, nobody believes him yet.
White House claims there was no hack. Twitter is also denying the claim. White House’s stance, I get easily, for it seems the Trump administration is in the habit of denying more than the election result. Besides, who would admit to using such a password in the first place?
