Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Twitter was hacked by…?


Model and singer Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (21) announced on June 24 that her Twitter had been hacked. She found account activities that were not from her and thought, “What on earth is this.”

Just when she was getting worried that her account had been hacked, the culprit was found. She announced, “It was my dad who knows my Twitter password. Sometimes he would randomly toy with my account. Sorry for the commotion.” She then uploaded a LINE conversation with her dad, “Dad, don’t touch my Twitter account!” but seemed happy with the relationship she has with her family members.

As for why her father would have access to her Twitter password, it turns out that it was left behind when she once logged in to Twitter on her Dad’s cellphone. Kyary said, “It happened before when my account also replied to reblogs on its own! I scolded him!” speaking of the previous time her father had “hacked” her Twitter account.

This time it seems like he was also told off harshly by his daughter to log out of her Twitter account.
