Drake’s Twitter account hacked by someone trying to gain more Snapchat followers

Hack follows similar security lapse experienced by Keith Richards, Katy Perry and more

Drake is the latest in a recent line of stars to get their Twitter accounts hacked.

Over the weekend, Keith Richards, Tame Impala, Tenacious D and Bon Iver all had their Twitter accounts hacked into, while Katy Perry had an alleged song leaked when her Twitter account was hacked late last month.

Now, as Noisey reports, a series of now-deleted tweets from Drake appear to suggest that he too was the victim of a hack.

The perpetrator appears to have been @2aiden3, whose Twitter account has now been suspended. A series of tweets posted by the mysterious user aimed to promote his Snapchat account.

At the weekend, Tame Impala’s account was hacked to send out a bomb threat, with the band’s page posting: ‘I HAVE 15 C4’S IN MY BAG AND 12 PIPEBOMBS IN MY BAG ALSO” at the account of US airline Jet Blue.

Tenacious D’s account falsely announced the death of singer/actor Jack Black, briefly sparking rumours that the band’s frontman and Hollywood actor had died. The account has since reassured fans that Black is alive and well.

Meanwhile, Drake has shared a new song called ‘4pm in Calabasas’ and the Justin Bieber remix of ‘One Dance’.
