Sean Hannity’s Twitter account, which mysteriously disappeared for a few hours on Saturday, was “briefly compromised,” according to the social media platform.
“While we normally do not discuss individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons, we have permission from the account owner to confirm that account was briefly compromised,” a Twitter spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement. “We are working with the owner to restore access.”
The temporary deletion of the “Hannity” host’s official account was a top trend on Twitter earlier in the day. As readers might expect, those on the right had a very different reaction to — and reasoning for — all the confusion than those on the left.
Twitter at its very best (or worst), folks.
The Fox News personality’s verified account, @seanhannity, since returned for all to see — though Hannity has yet to tweet from it.
Below is the last thing Hannity posted before his account went down. Yeah, this didn’t make things any less puzzling:

Earlier today, a Fox News Channel rep did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment from their end.
