Twitter account of Indian ambassador to UN Syed Akbaruddin

After the hack was noticed, Twitter briefly blocked the twitter handle of India's permanent representative to the UN.

The Twitter account of Syed Akbaruddin was hacked early today, with the unperturbed Indian envoy to the United Nations asserting that it would take more than a hack to keep him down. We will show you the power of the Turk!

One of the tweets from the account was a link to a YouTube video of Ayyildiz Tim.

The pictures were posted during the early hours of Sunday, and interestingly, Akbaruddin's account had also lost its verified blue tick while account was in control of the hackers, reported ANI. Thanks to @TwitterIndia & many others who helped.

The account was later restored with cooperation from Twitter India. In fact, more than 700 websites associated with the Indian government were hacked from 2013 to 2016.

The last known incident of a breach of a Ministry of External Affairs-related online digital asset was in November 2016.
