The hackers also posted several disturbing images on the page as well. A vast majority of Taylor’s fans caught on to the scam right away and hilariously many others began begging the hackers for highly esteemed follow-back from Taylor’s account.

Sources say that @Lizzard threatened to release nude image of Taylor in exchange for bitcoin, but there has been no word yet if any exchange has taken place. The accounts for both @Lizzard and @Veriuser have since been suspended.

Taylor posted a message on her Tumblr page in response to the hack and let fans know that her team was aware of the hack and they were in the process of updating and changing all her passwords.

Once everything was updated and changed, Taylor posted the following tweet directed at the hackers:

The heartwarming message has now been retweeted 757, 822 times which surpassed President Obama’s “Four more years” re-election tweet which has been retweeted 757,460 times.

President Obama’s tweet was record-breaking at the time, however it is now been ranked down to third place as the most retweeted message of all time. Tomlinson’s tweet is now in second place and of course we can all probably guess which tweet still hold the number one spot.

It is the famous Oscar night selfie from Ellen DeGeneres, which shattered all retweeting records and nearly broke the internet. It has been retweeted well over 3 million times to date.

Canseco-tweet2

(PCM) Things have not been going too well for troubled MLB star Jose Canseco these days. He recently blew part of his finger off while cleaning his gun at his home in Las Vegas, NV. Doctors were able to reattach his finger, however he then decided it would be a really funny joke to say that it fell off again during a poker game. Newsflash Jose … not funny!

After all the drama with the finger, Canseco then got into an altercation with his girlfriend and her mother that ended with the police showing up at his door. His girlfriend ended up breaking off their engagement and moving back to Los Angeles.

Now it seems that Canseco has made an attempt to look for love online and recently sent a tweet to country singer Shania Twain asking for her hand in marriage. He also tweeted a bare chested picture of himself as well!  Just bizarre!

The tweets, which have since been deleted said “Already tired of being single looking to get married asap.” Followed by his proposal to Twain which read “@ShaniaTwain want to get married we were supposed to meet when I played for the Blue Jays in 1998″.

There has been no word as to whether or not Twain saw the tweets! Canseco must be truly getting desperate, as Twain happens to be a happily married woman.

Twitter Sues The U.S. Government

Twitter1

(PCM) Social media giant Twitter has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government for the right to disclose and publish the full amount of government surveillance requests they receive.

Twitter has always been a huge advocate for free speech and would like the opportunity to be more forthcoming with its’ users about the full nature and the total number of requests for private user information that they receive from government agencies.

The lawsuit is based off an agreement made between internet companies such as Google and Microsoft which allow these companies the right to disclose the number of orders they receive, however only in broad ranges for example zero to 999.

In their lawsuit Twitter is stating that they should have the right to disclose the exact number of request that they receive rather than a broad range. Twitter vice president Ben Lee had the following to say “It’s our belief that we are entitled under the First Amendment to respond to our users’ concerns and to the statements of U.S. government officials by providing information about the scope of U.S. government surveillance — including what types of legal process have not been received”.

Twitter made an attempt to send a full disclosure report over to the FBI for publishing approval back in April of this year, but were denied their right to publish. Do you think as social media users we should have the full right to know the number of requests and just who may be looking at our accounts? Or do you feel it is an issue of national and international security and should remain secret?
