Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Thursday apologised for what happened on his platform.
"Tough day for us at Twitter. We all feel terrible this happened. We're diagnosing and will share everything we can when we have a more complete understanding of exactly what happened. Love to our teammates working hard to make this right," Jack Dorsey tweeted.
