NFL Twitter account hacked with false Tweet about Roger Goodell
The NFL's Twitter account got hacked. A false tweet was posted saying that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had died, writing: "We regret to inform our fans that our commissioner, Roger Goodell, has passed away. He was 57. #RIP." The Tweet was deleted. Law enforcement is investigating. "We have engaged law enforcement to look into the matter," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said. "We are reviewing and strengthening our cyber-security measures." Goodell is alive and well. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
