Tuesday has proven itself a bad day to be a brand on the internet.
Delta’s Facebook page was compromised Tuesday afternoon. Rather than seeing wanderlust-inducing posts from the airline, Facebook users instead saw an obscene image, apparently from a third party site. (Two posts have since been deleted).
The airline took to another social media platform to apologize:
Although the identity of the Delta hackers is unknown, earlier Tuesday Newsweek’s Twitter account was hacked by Cyber Caliphate, a group that claims ISIS affiliations. Twitter CFO Anthony Noto’s Twitter account also appeared to be compromised Tuesday afternoon, although content appeared to be spam-related.
Delta, of course, isn’t the first airline to apologize for broadcasting explicit images on social media. Last year, U.S. Airways inadvertently tweeted out a pornographic image in what it described as an honest mistake.
