Twitter account of Indian PM Modi personal website hacked

NEW DELHI - The Twitter account of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's personal website was hacked on Thursday, the social networking site confirmed.

Twitter said it was aware of the activity with Modi’s website account and has taken steps to secure it.

“We are actively investigating the situation. At this time, we are not aware of additional accounts being impacted,” a Twitter spokeswoman said in an emailed statement.

Modi’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the tweets posted on the account @narendramodi_in.

The account, with over 2.5 million followers, is the official Twitter handle for Modi's personal website (www.narendramodi.in/) and the Narendra Modi mobile application.
