Earlier this month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had his social media accounts hacked. Now, Brendan Iribe, CEO of the Facebook-backed Oculus, has apparently suffered the same fate.

"We here @oculus are very excited to announce our new CEO. @Lid!", a tweet made by his account read.

That was just the beginning, with the intruder following with:

"imagine creating the coolest s*** to ever be introduced to gaming and technology but using the same pass for 4 years lol... silly mr CEO!"

All the tweets are still live at the time of writing.

It's not just he and Zuckerberg though, with Google CEO Sundar Pichai having his Quora account broken into earlier this week.

Oculus did not immediately respond to request for comment.
