An unintelligible tweet was sent out by the U.S. Strategic Command (Stratcom) Twitter account on Sunday night that left followers concerned and confused, the Daily Dot reported.
A small child accidentally tweeted “;l;;gmlxzssaw” on the Stratcom account, causing widespread confusion, according to the Daily Dot. After about thirty minutes, the accidental tweet was deleted and followers were asked to disregard the tweet. However, the message was retweeted 11,000 times prior to deletion, according to The Hill.
Stratcom emphasized the account was not hacked but rather the Twitter account’s manager left his computer unattended and his child accidentally sent the tweet, according to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by The Daily Dot.
Filed a FOIA request with U.S. Strategic Command to see if I could learn anything about their gibberish tweet yesterday.
Turns out their Twitter manager left his computer unattended, resulting in his "very young child" commandeering the keyboard. pic.twitter.com/KR07PCyCUM

"Tragedy today as a cat walked across the keyboard at USSTRATCOM, launching nuclear missiles against Tunisia".
