My guess is that the SEC account was both hacked AND that the tweet was real.
Hacker first tweeted and then deleted just a ticker.
Then likely found the tweet with the announcement graphic and Gensler quote in the draft folder.
SEC wouldn’t get date wrong, and tweet only… pic.twitter.com/RQp7Mo4Zey

Honestly… that quote was so perfectly genslish and the wording of that tweet is exactly how you’d expect it to be worded from the SEC. That was either a tweet sitting in drafts or someone is good at mimicking SEC language.
