About that Paul Pierce Twitter post

ORLANDO — At some point during his postgame press conference, a post on Paul Pierce’s Twitter page  appeared that read: Anybody got a BROOM?
A reporter picked up on it and asked Dwight Howard  in his press conference about it, to which Howard replied, “Am I supposed to comment on that?” Pressed for a comment Howard said, “Pride comes before a fall. Just know that.”
While we have yet to hear from Pierce directly, it appears that his account was hacked. A company called Athlete Interactive, which manages digital media for several athletes, including Pierce, put on its Twitter page : That is NOT @paulpierce34 tweeting — the previous four tweets are all courtesy of a hack. Looking into it.
UPDATE: The last four posts on Pierce’s Twitter page were all removed overnight. As Pro Basketball Talk pointed out , the other posts to Pierce’s Twitter account were all submitted via Text or the web, while the offending posts were sent in via Twitterific.
On Wednesday morning at about 11:30, a tweet from Pierce’s account read: “Hacked in game and post game while on podium. Disregard chatter.”
