PLDT Twitter hacker changes account name to “PLDT Doesn’t Care,” posts Guy Fawkes mask and calls for faster internet

The official customer service Twitter account of telecommunications giant PLDT allegedly got hacked today, May 28.

The name of the account was changed to “PLDT Doesn’t Care.” A post from the account reads: “As the pandemic arises, Filipinos need fast internet to communicate with their loved ones. Do your job. The corrupt fear us, the honest support us, the heroic join us. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget . Expect us.” 


The post also included a photo of a Guy Fawkes mask—a symbol of rebellion made famous by the film “V for Vendetta”—and the hashtag #PLDTHacked.

Approximately 10 minutes later, a follow-up Tweet to the post threatened another telecommunications giant, Globe. “@enjoyGLOBE You’re next. #PLDTHacked,” read the post.


The latest Tweet from the allegedly hijacked account is a set of log-in details for the Twitter account, along with the same hashtag. Upon trying, however, the account can’t be accessed with the credentials shared.

05/28/20, 2 PM UPDATE: The account’s name has been changed back to “PLDT Cares.” Tweets have been deleted, except the first post with the Guy Fawkes mask image.
