Sony's Twitter Account Hacked, tweet Britney Spears' Death | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

Sony must be feeling a bit red-faced at the moment after they were hacked once again. The company had their twitter account hacked by unknown persons.

The hackers then went on to post on Sony Music's Twitter account that Britney Spears had died, featuring separate postings that read: "RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016," and "Britney spears is dead by accident! We will tell you more soon #RIPBritney."

It seemed the news fooled Bob Dylan who allegedly tweeted "Rest in peace @britneyspears" and this happened around the same time as Sony's tweet.

This was of course false as Britney Spears is alive and well and she said as much to CNN. The 35-year-old rubbished the rumour which then led to the belief that Sony must have been hacked.

"I assume their account has been hacked," Spears' manager, Adam Leber, told the news channel. "I haven't spoken to anyone... as of yet but I am certain their account was hacked. Britney is fine and well. There have been a few Internet clowns over the years who have made similar claims about her death, but never from the official Sony Music Twitter account."

Sony confirmed that its Sony Music Entertainment Twitter account had been "compromised."

They went on to apologize for the false tweet stating, "This has been rectified. Sony Music apologizes to Britney Spears and her fans for any confusion."
