Twitter Chief Finance Officer’s Account Seized by Spammer for a Brief PeriodOn Tuesday, the official account of the chief financial officer of Twitter started bombardment spam posts. The incident may have been caused by a glitch or the account could have been just hacked.

The Twitter CFO, Anthony Noto's account for a brief period fired off abrupt, communication using slangy language inviting the viewers to click on a link which promised to show a funny video or give some other kind of reward.

The moment it came to notice of the company, Twitter removed the posts quickly. A Twitter spokesperson told a media channel, "His account was sending spam Tweets. We've locked the account down and deleted the Tweets."

However the spokes person said that initial investigations did not indicate any of the account information from Noto's account was accessed.

The San Francisco based company said, these unwanted posts in the official Twitter account may be a job of the hackers, but however these may also result from bugs in third-party applications which are anticipated to work in coordination with the one-to-many messaging service.

It is not the first time for Noto , to be annoyed with his Twitter account. Last year once he unintentionally posted a public tweet regarding an acquisition which the company was planning.
