Earlier this month, two controversial tweets were “favorited” by a personal Twitter account belonging to Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. The first tweet referred to the officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray as “those 6 THUG cops” and the other praised Mosby and claimed she “INFURIATES a certain kind of white person.”
But Mosby’s office is now claiming that the two favorited tweets were the work of a hacker.
“Both Mosby’s official Twitter account and her personal account were hacked,” the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office reportedly told “The Kelly File” on Wednesday. “We do not know how long it’s been going on, we are working with Twitter.”
Mosby revealed on May 23 that her official government Twitter account had been hacked, but did not mention her personal account being compromised. Further, the tweets in question were favorited by her personal account weeks before her government account was reportedly hacked.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly expressed cynicism that a hacker would take over her account and only randomly favorite two tweets.
“The Five” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle said Mosby is behaving like an “activist” when she is “supposed to be an impartial evaluator of the facts of the case.”
The officers charged in the Gray case have asked for a change of venue because it doesn't appear they can get a "fair and impartial trial" in Baltimore.
