Tweet was posted via LinkedIn.

EDIT: Account is now protected



Update:

Polygon said:
Reached for comment Friday morning, a person responding to Murray’s email account and identifying himself as Sean said that he sent the tweet.

“The tweet is from me, but somebody from the team took it down,” he wrote in the email. “We have not been coping well.”

Murray hasn’t responded to follow up emails and his formerly active personal Twitter account hasn’t been used since Aug. 18.
Developing … We are still working on further verification that Murray's tweet and email aren’t the result of a hack.

Hopefully this indicates that HelloGames will be at YouTube Live with Gaming sometime next month. Geoff will do a great job.

Oh come on, it's obvious their account was hijacked. That one lone tweet was posted via LinkedIn, so I guess Murray got hacked there.

guessing someone who had the twitter account linked up to linkedin never changed their password after the hack since it came via that

I really think this is just the account being hacked. Or Sean Murray has been brought over the edge of sanity and is just manically typing shit.
