Twitter Blunder For McLaren As Account Is Hacked
If you’re an avid follower of McLaren’s Twitter account, you may have picked up on a rather unusual change in its social media strategy over the weekend.
This was down to the fact that a group of hackers – thought to be Cyber Wolf Gang (what a name!) – managed to gain access to the supercar manufacturer’s profile.
Cue a string of bizarre, yet strangely amusing, tweets – all of which have subsequently been deleted.
We aren’t really sure why Cyber Wolf Gang decided to hack @McLarenAuto but at least there was no malice and – if anything – they provided a bit of a chuckle, although we do feel sorry for McLaren’s IT department, honest.
SuperUnleaded contacted McLaren for a comment but we haven’t received a response as yet.
