The chief executive of tech support firm Zendesk has become the latest high-profile figure to have his Twitter account hacked.

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.
