Instagram Account Hacked, Says Shane Watson

Shane Watson on Tuesday took to Twitter to say that someone has hacked his Instagram account.

“My apologies to everyone for the illicit photos that have been posted on my Instagram account. First my Twitter account on Friday got hacked and now Instagram today. Instagram needs to help out a lot quicker when things like this happens. This is taking way too long!!!,” Watson tweeted.

“Twitter last Friday were amazing at getting onto it so quickly but Instagram… Where are you?????,” Watson wrote on Twitter.

Twitter’s quick response helped Watson get back the access to his micro-blogging site handle on Sunday.

“I am back!!!! Thanks so much to all of the guys and gals from Twitter who have helped me out to get back on track after some muppet hacked my account on Friday. #Iamback,” Watson had tweeted after getting back control of his Twitter handle.
