@POTUS Twitter Account Not Secure and Using Non-Government Gmail.

Alex Wall, the former social media director of Hillary Clinton has noticed something about Donald Trump’s official POTUS Twitter account. It has absolutely no security measures that are normal for an account of such a serious nature, including no two-step authorization—which is used to send a code to your phone to make sure hackers who guess or get your twitter password can’t easily access it.

Worse, it turns out that the @POTUS account is also tied to a GMAIL account with similarly, no security.

What does this mean? Tomorrow could easily access the account, and start tweeting on behalf of the President crazy stuff, and cause an international relations mess of sorts.

Even more seriously, this is probably a violation of the law which requires all Presidential records to be kept — not on GMAIL.com


Pesach “Pace” Lattin is the original hacker. At 10 years old he took his parents original 8088 XT computer and took it apart and was told that he had to put it together. It took him a few days to figure it out, but within a year he was building computers himself. He also spent much of his time selling computer game copies to his friends at school – making a nice little profit.
