"Hi, we are OurMine", said another post on Saturday by the group that has previously taken over the accounts of a number of companies, including Netflix, HBO and Playstation. "The tweets were made through a third-party tool for data analytics" it said.

"OurMine sent similar messages across the various worldwide accounts of the club, with a focus on Neymar, but in the Arabic version they referred to the hastag: "#Bartomeuout". It also posted a message noting that it was the second time it had hacked the club.

One post shared a photoshopped image of Neymar in Barca's latest shirt with a series of question marks and a later post added: "Well, we read some private messages and it look [sic] like Neymar will be back here".

"Well, this is the second time, the security level is still not the best".

Game desk.The Avramine Hacker Group hacked the Twitter account of Olympic and FC Barcelona on Saturday. "Well, even Facebook is hackable but at least their security better than Twitter", posted the hackers.

"FC Barcelona will conduct a cybersecurity audit and will review all protocols and links with third party tools, in order to avoid such incidents", the soccer club said in a tweet after the hack. The messages were later deleted and Barcelona eventually retook control of its accounts. We apologise for any inconvenience this situation may have caused'.

Twitter locked down the affected accounts and was "working closely" with partners to restore them.

It comes after Facebook's official Twitter and Instagram accounts were hijacked last Friday.

The tweets have since been deleted but Twitter users managed to grab screenshots.

A post from the hacking group appeared on handles belonging to the IOC, including the official Olympics and IOC Media accounts, this evening. While the incident was verified by Twitter, the hacked accounts were temporarily suspended.
