The Adventist NGO’s account delighted its Twitter followers with the promise of free goats from its gift catalogue for everyone that retweeted its offer. The message was retweeted 144,000 times.
ADRA’s Silver Spring headquarters has been overwhelmed with demands for the goats.
“Every goat in our herd behind Elmshaven was spoken for within a minute of this malicious attack on our Twitter account,” said an official statement from the agency. “If this hacker offers free wells next, we are sunk.”
