Leslie Jones returns to Twitter after website hack
Ghostbusters star begins posting messages again after facing numerous trolls and having web site hacked
Leslie Jones is back on Twitter after taking a hiatus when her website was hacked and pulled offline.
Jones, who had been on a break since Aug. 23 from her otherwise consistent and active tweeting, posted a series of back-to-normal messages Saturday night.
I was Dorothy. I thought her name was balance but that the other one. <a href="https://t.co/gcte9folDT">pic.twitter.com/gcte9folDT</a>—@Lesdoggg

Jones' personal website, JustLeslie.com, was hacked in August, revealing personal information and private photos of the actress. U.S. Homeland Security said it was investigating. The site remains offline.
The Saturday Night Live star has been the target of vicious online attacks, prompting her to step away from social media and pushing Twitter to ban the account of Milo Yiannopoulos, who was accused of instigating a barrage of hateful comments.
Her return to Twitter came a day after Yiannopoulos, a gay conservative and technology editor for Breitbart News, told ABC's Nightline in an interview that he considers himself a "virtuous troll" and isn't responsible for what his followers say online to Jones.
