The group, which before having its account suspended had more than 40,000 followers on Twitter, claimed to have learned Mr Zuckerberg’s password as a result of a recent LinkedIn data leak.
“Hey @finkd, you were in LinkedIn Database with the password ‘dadada’! DM (direct message) for proof,” the group tweeted from Mr Zuckerberg’s Twitter account.
Apart from this the team told Facebook founder that they were just testing his security and also invited him to contact them.

LinkedIn said it would invalidate the passwords of the accounts impacted and warned users to reset their passwords.
