Hacker cracks Sen. Grassley’s Twitter, corrects his grammar

A hacker claiming to be a “follower” of Anonymous gained access to the Twitter page of Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Monday afternoon, posting a bevy of tweets intended to embarrass the long-time politician.

He claimed he was particularly motivated by Grassley’s support of SOPA and PIPA, the anti-piracy bills recently stalled in Congress.

“Dear Iowans, vote against ACTA, SOPA, and PIPA, because this man, Chuck Grassley, wants YOUR internet censored and all of that BS,” the first hacked tweet said.

“Chuck is a supporter of SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA, meaning he wants no privacy for private accounts.”

“Yes, it’s surprising that I’m actually writing in full sentences with spaces and correct grammar/spelling,”

Ironically Grassley will probably use this incident to solidify support for ACTA. However, it's yet another form of harmless activism, as we've seen lately, that spreads a message without causing destruction.

It's clear that Grassley doesn't understand technology, doesn't care to understand technology, and his ignorance has come back to bite him and will continue to do so as long as he remains ignorant.
