Ian Botham Twitter trending after hack

Sir Ian Botham has thanked his loyal Twitter fans and a hacker, a tweet that went viral showing a mans genital area from his verified @BeefyBotham account caused so much of a reaction the star got many hits.

The 58-year-old former cricketer said that the picture of a mans penis was not his doing, but was at the hands of a hacker. Botham thanked the hacker, and as you can see in the tweet below Botham says thank you to the hacker after he got 500 hits in 20 minutes.

The illicit picture that went live came with words that said, “What are you thinking…xx” and before Ian Botham could delete the image it was retweeted thousands of times, and this is when the star started to trend on Twitter.

It was footballer Robbie Savage who basically said to Botham, “Mate, think you been hacked.” Botham then took measures and changed his Twitter password.

In a way the hack done Sir Ian Botham some good, because now he is trending in Twitter, he has had more hits over the last day than any other day.

Do you believe Ian Botham was hacked or did he out the lewd photo up himself?
