Pop singer Katy Perry was hacked on Monday, with her account sending abusive tweets to her 89 million followers and reportedly leaking an unreleased song.
The hackers accessed her account and posted a series of random tweets on her timeline. One of them was referring to her longstanding feud with Swift. They wrote, “Miss you baby,” while tagging the Shake It Off hitmaker’s account.
All of the tweets were deleted from the Dark Horse singer’s account later after they were posted, the most followed on Twitter, beating Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.
Twitter account @sw4ylol, which allegedly belongs to the hackers, shared Katy’s new song called Witness 1.3.
The official account later posted a screenshot of an e-mail from the music sharing site, announcing they had removed the track under a copyright claim by Universal Music Group.
2 Nepalis in Lhasa jail for smuggling gold
RASUWA — Two Nepali youths are reported to be in a jail in Lhasa of China, on the charge of their involvement in gold smuggling.
Gyal Dorje Tamang of Gosaikunda Rural Municipality-5 in Rasuwa and Bikash Waiba of Hakubesi of Aamachhodongmo Rural Municipality were detained in Chinese territory by the customs department informers of the Tibet government around a month ago as they were about to enter Nepal on a truck bearing the Nepali number plate.
The Chinese side confiscated nine pieces of precious yellow metal from the two, Rasuwa District Police Office quoted the Nepal Consulate General Office in Lhasa as saying.
According to Rasuwa DPO’s Inspector of Police Dhruba Silwal, further details regarding the case are awaited.
It may be noted that the Chinese side has already started implementing the proposal floated by the Nepali side during the past border-security meetings to increase its surveillance in such illegal affairs bearing in mind increasing smuggling of gold into Nepali territory via China, as Silwal said.Follow @gorkhapost
