Later the tweet was deleted from the account and the account has been seized. Zuckerberg did not tweet on his rival social network since January 2012.
Hackers claimed the “dadada” password leaked through a massive data breach on LinkedIn in May with more than ‘164 million users’ were stolen.
The LinkedIn leak is believed to be caused by a hacker named Peace, who also claimed to have stolen the passwords and emails of roughly 360 million Myspace users. It was considered one of the largest password leaks ever.
