Peel Regional Police are crafting 140-character messages again Wednesday.
The service suspended its Twitter account Monday evening after a hacker took control of the account around 9 p.m., tweeting profanities.
“What was posted does not represent our service,” said Sgt. Josh Colley.
The account name was changed to KEEMSTAR, with the profile photo and background image also altered.
A short time later, the account was taken offline.
The matter is under investigation.
“We’ll be up and running again soon,” said Colley.
Officers are expected to resume tweeting on Tuesday; Peel Police have nearly 80,000 followers.
