McDonald’s has said its Twitter account was “compromised” after it sent an insulting message to President Donald Trump.

“You are a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back,” the tweet said.

It also asserted that the president had “tiny hands”.

“We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this,” tweeted McDonald’s, not long after the message was removed.

The firm said that it had been notified by Twitter that the account had been “compromised”.

It was not clear whether this meant that the account had been hacked or, for example, taken over by a rogue employee.

In January, the BBC said that one of its accounts had been hacked after it reported that Donald Trump had been shot.

Most people are reporting getting their news online rather than from newspapers. Newsrooms around the world have branched out into online outlets for their distribution. Smartphones and Tablets have given us unprecedented access to the news, whenever and however we want it. While you may see various writers for the Internet posting their opinions on the news, real Internet journalists base their news writing and reporting in the fundamentals of journalism. That is, education and training in the core elements of journalism still matter. Real reporting still matters and that’s what i have been doing over the last 7 years.
