Anderson Cooper: Trump Taunt on Twitter Wasn't From Me

Anderson Cooper: Trump Taunt on Twitter Wasn't From Me

I guess that really does mean that you can't believe everything that you read on the Internet. "Pathetic loser." It then went viral after Cooper's 9.8 million followers caught wind of the post, with 16,000 likes and 2,700 retweets. "Pathetic loser." That tweet has since been deleted.

Trump endorsed odd in the primary, but backed Moore in the general election.

CNN's communications team issued a statement on the social media platform, backing Cooper's claims that someone had gained unauthorized access to his account. "Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!"

The tweet responded to one from President Trump about the election for Alabama's U.S. Senate seat.

What was the official reason the tweet was posted?

Those who pay close attention to Anderson Cooper on Twitter may have noticed something a little out of the ordinary: Cooper's account replying to a Donald Trump tweet in a, um, not so professional way. "[I] have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets".

In a follow-up tweet Cooper said that his account had been hacked.

CNN later released a statement saying that the tweet was made by someone who stole the phone of an assistant to Cooper.

CNN's public relations Twitter account wrote: "This morning someone gained access to the handle @andersoncooper and replied to POTUS".

"We are looking into how this happened", he added.

Not everyone bought the freaky explanation for the tweet.
