The story that keeps on changing – and keep off Twitter!

What am I talking about? Well, how the NYT reports Breibart carrying the story of how a poor democrat liberal congressman by the name of Weiner claims now that this is public that he had is Twitter account hacked and a picture of his wiener sent to some young college reporter:

Representative Anthony D. Weiner, one of the most prolific users of social media among politicians, said his Twitter account was hacked this weekend when someone sent out a lewd photograph under his name to a young woman in Seattle.

The episode unfolded Saturday night when it was reported on the Web site biggovernment.com, run by the conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart. It played out all day Sunday on the Internet, with Mr. Weiner, a Democrat who represents part of Brooklyn and Queens, addressing the matter on his own Twitter and Facebook accounts, and with bloggers from the left and the right arguing about whether this might be the start of a scandal or an example of how easy it is for political rivals to harm each other’s reputations using new technologies.

Neither Mr. Weiner, an outspoken defender of liberal positions, nor Mr. Breitbart returned messages requesting comment on Sunday night.

Representative Wiener also so far refuses to ask the FBI to investigate the hacking of not just his Twitter account but several others, to pull of this stunt or say if that’s Weiner’s wiener. The claim that his account was hacked shouldn’t bode well for Twitter and any of the other media involved. If this stuff is so easy to hack anyone on twitter can be compromised. It makes Twitter a serious hazard for its users. Still, so far, neither Twitter nor any of the other companies with technologies involved have given any indication that they are investigating what really happened. My guess is because Weiner told them not to. Such a high profile hack would not go ignored otherwise. The story doesn’t end there. The fact that a picture was loaded to his yfrog account, then deleted, is confirmed, despite Wiener’s claims that was not the case. Most of the MSM remains uninterested or in excuse making mode.

My guess is that it won’t be very long before the claims that this was a hack job completely fall apart and Weiner then proceeds to replace that lie with a new one where they lay all the blame on some staffer. Yeah right. Didn’t we go through a revelation, quickly dismissed by the MSM, followed by someone else getting out the facts that were so easy to get at, just like this story seems to be looking to develop, with John Edwards, just recently? Stay of the social media stuff guys. Either Twitter takes security to lightly, someone else can too easily pretend to be you on it, and make you look bad. And unless you are a democrat with a complacent MSM willing to shill for you, people are going to think you are a perv when the hacker or friend posts a picture of your boner to someone you shouldn’t be doing that with!
