Cybercrime isn't a laughing matter, well, except in this case.
The Syrian Electronic Army decided to shake things up in the football world by announcing the "resignation" of FIFA president Sepp Blatter via Twitter (per Goal.com).
Here's some of what Mr. Blatter had to say on his account:
So what if I took money from Qatari prince? I am the family's bread earner.
I have recommended his excellency prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan as my successor. The royal family has done much for Fifa, I am sure Jordan will make an excellent host for 2030.
Blatter's account wasn't the only high-profile twitter account to be targeted as the official World Cup account also weighed in on the matter (via Goal.com).
Sepp Blatter has been investigated for multiple charges of bribery. Emails between the Qatari foreign ministry and Mr Blatter were found to conspire against some teams.
Given the general feeling concerning Blatter's recent time in charge of FIFA, this story definitely created some laughs.
