#TheToasterIsStillLoyal: Anderson Cooper Someone #Hacked His Twitter Account to Post One (1) Anti-Trump Tweet

He's claiming he was #Hacked. Anthony Weiner claimed he too was #Hacked for a single tweet, too.

Anthony Weiner notably did not contact the authorities about this breach of his privacy and this attempt to diminish his reputation. He preferred to keep his "#Hacking" as a small, quiet matter, using only his own resources to investigate.

I found that strange. I found it strange that a man would try to minimize a pretty serious bit of defamation and vandalism of reputation.

It seemed to me that there would be a good reason to not report a #Hacking to the police: if it was not in fact a #Hacking at all, and if reporting it to the police would result in 1, the police announcing to the world that the user tweeted the alleged rogue tweet himself, and 2, being charged for filing a false report.

It seemed that way to me immediately, and that turned out to be correct in that instance.

So now Anderson Cooper claims someone "#Hacked" his twitter account to post a single tweet, and nothing else.

The cable network tweeted early Wednesday that "someone gained access" to Anderson's account and sent the tweet to the president. "We're working with Twitter to secure the account," it said.

...

The apparently rogue tweet came in response to President Donald Trump explaining why Republican Roy Moore wasn’t able to win the race. "Oh, really? You endorsed him tool! Pathetic loser," read the tweet.

I have repeatedly asked Anderson Cooper and CNN's PR account to find out which law enforcement agencies Anderson Cooper and/or CNN have contacted to investigate this "#Hacking."

So far, they have not answered.

Until they do, I will assume they have not contacted the police.

And then I'll just wonder about the reasons that might animate someone to refuse to contact the police about an invasion of privacy.
