What a weird succession of tweets. I mean, first he definitely tweets himself (with the book picture, then someone hacks his account immediately thereafter, and then he regains control of it minutes after that again? And is he really trying to blame his three year old for the quitting tweet? Then his 3 year old is extremely talented at writing.

Weird, weird stuff. Reminds me of Axl cancelling the tour last year, supposedly also someone hacking his twitter account...

I see your point, but then the fact he denied it almost immediately afterwards, meh who knows. He hasn't quit, that's the main thing.



GN'R's new tweet:



gunsnroses HEADS UP GNR Fans! @tommy_stinson 's Twitter account was hacked earlier... be sure to protect those passwords and change them often!

Here's what is nubbing me: If someone had succeeded at hacking into Tommy's twitter account, why would they wait with posting something damaging till just after Tommy had posted something himself (the tweet with his own picture must be from himself)? Of course, if they are devious they would wait until just that moment so people would believe that fake tweet was real, but still, by doing it this way Tommy would probably quickly see the fake tweet and be in position to deny it. It would probably be better to wait till a time when Tommy was not active on twitter and then post the damaging tweet. And if the hackers had no thought about coordinating their tweet, what are the chances they would incidentally tweet just seconds after Tommy tweeted himself? Pretty slim.

So what am I saying? I dunno Wink. It just seems a bit far-fetched that his account was hacked. Maybe he was typing that tweet as a joke and his daughter accidentally published it?

But again, it doesn't matter much since he quickly denied the twitter and very much confirmed he is in the band.
