Twitter says there is nothing to back up Rep. Maxine Waters’ claim that her official account was “hacked” or “erased” Tuesday.
A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment on the tweet, adding to the Daily Caller, “as is standard, we have open lines of communication with her office and have worked with them to ensure the account is secure. At this time, we’ve identified no signs of account compromise.”
Waters was widely mocked earlier in the day for a bizarre message.
“I have been hacked and my Twitter account has been erased,” Waters tweeted. Although many users pointed out here account is still there and past tweets are still visible.
“I know who has done this. I will take care of this,” she added, signing off, “M Waters.”
One user responded: “But you’re tweeting.”
And a staffer for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seemed to joke about Waters’ situation, Fox News reported.
“I have no insider knowledge about this. But I am working to secure the movie rights,” Robyn Patterson, Pelosi’s deputy communications director, wrote.
The California congresswoman is infamous for her “get more confrontational” comments while attending a protest in Minneapolis ahead of Derek Chauvin’s trial for the murder of George Floyd.
Prior to those comments, she told supporters to harass Trump administration officials.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters said, “and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
