ANONYMOUS USA has hacked a Twitter account that was posing as Zack Tahhan, the man who caught the Brooklyn Subway Shooter.
The hacker group tweeted from the account that they hacked into the account “at the request of some people because it was impersonating the name of the New York Hero Zack Tahhan.”
Previous tweets from the account are written in first-person as if they were written by Tahhan.
Another tweet from the account reads: “This account (Twitter) is being managed by a group of social media experts. Fans of Zack.”
The account was taking donations for Tahhan, but later tweeted they had all been returned.
Most of the previous tweets were deleted, but some remain, including posts where “Zack” thanks people who were posting videos of interviews with him.
One tweet from the account reads: “Thank you everyone for the wishes what I did it was protecting my City [heart emoji] and being a good citzin. Shout out to NYPD and everyone involved catching the bad guy.”
The account was created in November of 2021 and has over 22,000 followers.
