The account linked to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted a series of mysterious and increasingly racist, antisemitic and Holocaust denying tweets Friday night.

Initial reports indicated it had been hacked.
Despite his pinned tweet claiming that Twitter is committed to increase collective health, openness and civility, the account @jack tweeted the n-word, and that “Hitler is innocent.”


His account also tweeted that Twitter’s headquarters is “blowing up” as well as re-tweeting a tweet saying “Nazi Germany did nothing wrong.” The series of tweets went on for about ten minutes before it appears that staff of someone at Twitter was able to get a hold of the account a little after 4 p.m. EST.

By 4:07 the racist tweets and the re-tweets of antisemitic pro-Nazi tweets had been removed.
