Did the White House press secretary just tweet out his Twitter password?
Cybersecurity is hard.
If Trump were to implement a plan to do the security aspect of cyber better, it would most assuredly include a recommendation to not tweet out login information for social media accounts. Or maybe it wouldn’t even—that should be obvious to everyone.
Regardless, it appears that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was not briefed on whatever protocols the administration has because it looks like he just tweeted out a password to his Twitter account.
It could be something else, too, because it appears Spicer has an affinity for tweeting then deleting what is either passcodes or nonsense.
This was yesterday.
If this is any indication, maybe cybersecurity is hardly doable with this administration.
Or perhaps protecting White House passwords is scheduled to be covered on “working day” five.
