A mysterious tweet from the US Strategic Command that sent internet sleuths into a frenzy over the weekend was actually the work of a precocious tot who was left unattended with a laptop.
The gibberish was deleted shortly after, with the red-faced agency issuing another tweet, “Apologizes [sic] for any confusion. Please disregard this post.”
“The Command’s Twitter manager, while in telework status, momentarily left the Command’s Twitter account open and unattended,” the statement to the outlet said. “His very young child took advantage of the situation and started playing with the keys and unfortunately, and unknowingly, posted the tweet.”
It added, “Absolutely nothing nefarious occurred, i.e., no hacking of our Twitter account. The post was discovered and notice to delete it occurred telephonically.”
