Matt Walsh Takes Legal Action Against Perpetrator and Platform After Twitter Account Hack
Author: Deborah Ross / 2023-04-20 08:16:46Conservative commentator Matt Walsh is taking legal action after being hacked on Twitter. According to Walsh, the hacker gained access to his account and began posting vulgar and offensive tweets to his followers. Walsh has since regained control of his account and is working with his legal team to track down the perpetrator.
The hack reportedly occurred on April 18th, and Walsh has since been vocal about his frustrations with Twitter's handling of the situation. In a statement released on his website, Walsh accused Twitter of being «utterly useless» in its response to the hack, stating that the company failed to take any action until he began publicly calling them out.
Walsh is now seeking legal action against both the hacker and Twitter, citing the company's negligence in preventing the hack from occurring in the first place. He has stated that he hopes this legal action will serve as a warning to other social media platforms that they must take stronger measures to protect their users' accounts.
This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of cybersecurity and the potential risks that come with using social media platforms.
