ESPN host Mike Wilbon’s Twitter account was allegedly hacked tonight.
The hacker changed the name of Wilbon’s account to “JJN was here” and altered the biography section to something mildly offensive. In other words, the account more closely resembled his “ghost twitter” @MikeWilbonSaid.
Interest in the hacking led to a spike in Wilbon’s followers, up about 100 users at last count. Most are taking the breach in good spirit, like @MattyZimmer who said Wilbon is “suddenly interesting.”
Wilbon co-hosts Pardon the Interruption and serves as an analyst for ESPN.
