Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner deactivates Twitter account

Dec 19 2017, 4:01 pm

Around 4:00 p.m. yesterday, Surrey Mayor Linda Hepner’s Twitter feed displayed a rather strange tweet that left many of her 2,800 followers confused.


Users responded by jokingly assuming Hepner had sent a drunk tweet.

But in fact, Mayor Hepner was not drunk at 4 p.m. Instead, her account had been hacked, according to the Mayor’s Office.

Shortly after, Mayor Hepner’s account was deactivated.
