Anti-Putin activists hacked the Twitter account of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday to tell his 2.5 million followers that was resigning from government to pursue freelance photography.
@MedvedevRussia, Medvedev's verified Russian language account, was hacked at around 10:20 a.m. Moscow time. A string of suspicious Tweets were then sent for around 40 minutes.
The first said (translated into English): "I am resigning. I am ashamed of the actions of the government. Forgive me."
