Less than two days after being traded to the Dallas Stars in a blockbuster trade, former Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin sent out an ill-advised tweet. To say it was ill-advised is putting it nicely, because this was flat-out stupid. He’s 21-years-old and 21-year-olds do dumb things, but when you have as many followers as Seguin has (270,000+), you have to be smarter with your tweets.
And like clock work, Seguin claimed he was hacked.
Twitter hacking has to stop. My apologies

Let’s be honest, not every bad tweet sent from a celebrity or athlete is from a “hacker.” Just like the adderall claim by NFLers, this excuse should no longer be accepted.
