Pyne claims he was hacked over gay porn Twitter “like”

Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne has claimed his Twitter account was hacked after a picture of gay porn was liked at 2am.

“I was [sleeping] at 2am. Someone tried to hack my social media yesterday. Maybe they are making mischief over the plebiscite?” Mr Pyne tweeted this morning.

The hacking claim will likely spark a Parliamentary investigation, with Australian Conservatives Senator Cory Bernardi concerned Australia’s national security may have been placed in a compromising position.

Senator Bernardi told Sky News this morning, he did sympathise with Mr Pyne.

“These things do happen,” he said.

“Who looks at gay porn at 2am, on the day that the gay marriage thing gets up?”

The Minister’s gaffe was picked up by a Twitter bot which monitors politicians activity.
