Today the AP twitter account was hacked. The hackers sent out a FALSE tweet about a terrorist attack on the White House. With that false tweet being made the stock market took a nose dive. You can see that nose dive in the above image taken from google finance. Right where the graph goes straight down was the nose dive. At 1:00 pm the Dow Jones was at 14704.75 points, at 1:08 pm the Dow Jones was at 14697.79 points, and at 1:10 pm the Dow Jones was at 14566.94 points. At about 1:14 pm when news broke that the AP twitter account was hacked and that the terrorist attack story was false the stock market drove straight back up to 14685.74 points.
