Telkom Kenya has said it’s still investigating the source of the inappropriate content shared on its Twitter account two days ago.

The firm announced through Twitter that it had removed the content but was tracking down the source, and  two days later it’s yet to let its users know what really happened.

“It has been noted with concern that a post containing offensive material was placed using this handle. We have removed the material and are investigating the source. We apologise for this and reassure of our commitment to the highest ethical standards of Communication,” the firm posted moments after the content was flagged by its users.

Telkom Kenya confirmed that its official Twitter account had been breached leading to the adult content being shared via the account.

Though the offensive content has since been removed, the firm is yet to find the perpetrator and this might happen if the telco can’t identify the cause,

“We have removed the material and are investigating the source. We apologise for this and reassure of our commitment to the highest ethical standards of Communication,” the firm announced. But the responses from Twitter show its customers are not satisfied with Twitter security, at least according to a some of them below. Away from Twitter, other users wonder why Telcom Kenya hasn’t moved its website and online shop to the more secure HTTPS.
