It took the @NFL account 4+ minutes to delete this obviously hacked tweet. pic.twitter.com/tyidNhfEDL— Mark Van Deusen (@LucidSportsFan) June 7, 2016
How big a story is this going to be? As people like to say, the NFL "owns a day of the week." The account has 19.2 million followers (currently listed as the 63rd most-followed account in existence). The first hacked tweet, and what I assume was a third hacked tweet, came 10 minutes apart. I can't even imagine the level of freak-out that was going on in the league offices during those 10 minutes...
