SEC's Gallagher says agency looking into bogus AP tweet

NEW YORK, April 23 (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commision is looking into a ‘bogus’ tweet that appeared on the Associated Press’s Twitter account on Tuesday, according to SEC Commissioner Daniel Gallagher.

Hackers took control of the AP’s account and sent a false tweet about two explosions in the White House that briefly spooked financial markets.
