Hackers take over Barcelona Twitter and announce Di Maria signing

FALSE ALARM!

Barcelona had their official Twitter account hacked overnight which has caused a whirlwind of confusion. Hackers made the most of their power by announcing the signing of former Real Madrid player Angel Di Maria to Barcelona.

“Welcome Angel Di Maria to FC Barcelona!”

Barcelona tried taking control of their account, but the hackers weren’t giving up that easy.

The hackers responsible were OurMine, a Saudi Arabian group of hackers who have boasted the takeover of CNN, Netflix, Marvel and Facebook.

These guys are the real deal and the response on Twitter was brilliant. 😂
