Pádraig Harrington’s Twitter has been hacked and is very NSFW

Not a great start to the weekend.

Pádraig Harrington has woken up this Saturday morning to what appears to be a hacking on his personal Twitter account.

The pro-golfer, who usually uses his Twitter account to raise awareness for suicide prevention, promote charity events and tweet general merriment, has woken up this morning to find that his account no longer uses his own name nor sends out tweets of his usual ilk.

The account is currently, at time of writing, under the control of someone called Tammy Boolman.

The personal bio section has been changed from Harrington’s own to: “Voice actress Travel lover. Waiting you at 

And, lastly, several tweets made up of scantily clad women and Korean celebrities have taken over his timeline.

The profile still uses Harrington’s own Twitter handle (padraig_h), featuring his official blue tick, and we can see from the newsfeed that the change happened sometime around 2pm on Saturday afternoon.

The Dublin-native’s last personally-sent tweet was to promote his new Spring 2018 clothing collection for Irish retailer Dunnes Stores.

It is not clear as of yet what exactly has happened to the account, with an all-out hacking being suspected at this time.
