Don't worry, World War 3 hasn't broken out yet (at least as far as we know), but if you're following the New York Post @NYpost or UPI @UPI, you might think otherwise.

In an apparent double hack, both accounts simultaneously posted fake news, sourced to the Pope, announcing that World War III had begun, and the calling of an emergency Federal Reserve meeting to discuss the issue.

Good news / bad news is that both accounts were hacked. No one's taken credit yet, or explained why the motiivation to post on both simultaneously. At press time, the Post has deleted their tweets but not explained them and UPI has not. Screenshot below.
