The Congress on Thursday deactivated 200 Twitter accounts of its leaders after the official handles of the party and its vice president Rahul Gandhi were hacked multiple times in the last 24 hours. The Indian National Congress' internal email server is under a sustained hacking attack because of which some of our Twitter accounts were compromised. Twitter has restored access for some of them and is working with us in keeping the accounts safe. Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said he suspected the role of followers of the government behind hacking of Twitter accounts of the party and its vice president. Sources in Twitter said there was no security breach at their end, but the accounts may have been compromised through breach of e-mail.
