INDIANAPOLIS (WXIN) — If you noticed some odd posts coming from the @IndStatePolice Twitter account Saturday afternoon, it was not really from Indiana State Police officers.
The account, which has “Official Twitter for the Indiana State Police” written in its bio, was hacked, ISP confirmed Saturday. As of three p.m., at the very least one of many posts from hackers had been deleted from the account and Sgt. John Perrine was “working to get it rectified,” police mentioned.
“I don’t like that that was poo poo head I don’t like that,” a put up from ISP’s account, which was a quote retweet of a Wall Street Journal article on actor Sean Penn, mentioned. A screenshot of the now-deleted Tweet is proven under.
Other presumably hacked posts included replies to state troopers in Evansville with little punctuation. These are proven under.
It seems that as of three:50 p.m. Saturday, the account is again underneath ISP’s management.
“It appears our Twitter account was recently hacked, the previous tweet sent 15 minutes ago was not sent by ISP personnel. Please notify us if you see any suspicious activity from our account. Thank you.”

It is unclear right now who hacked the ISP account or how.
