Mikkel Svane’s hijacked account had its ID image changed to that of a cartoon.

It follows similar attacks against accounts owned by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, musicians Keith Richards, Katy Perry and Bon Iver and the model Kylie Jenner. All occurred over the last fortnight.

Zendesk played down the attack.

“This was an isolated incident that affected a personal Twitter account,” said a spokeswoman.

“No Zendesk systems or accounts were accessed. We were able to quickly identify and secure the impacted account.” Read more @ IT Secuirty for Soical Media.
