After nearly half an hour of increasingly unlikely statements, it was revealed that a group called the 'Syrian Electronic Army,' supportive of the country's leader, Bashar Al-Assad, had taken over the account. The group has hacked several high-profile Twitter users in recent weeks to advance its political agenda.
Blatter's account began by asking: "So what if I took money from Qatari prince? I am the family's bread earner," before declaring himself unrepentant.
"His excellency the emir of Qatar has been the most generous figure I have even met," it wrote. "I do not apologize for my decision. I have done the best for FIFA. For almost 15 years I have toiled for this organization.
"I have recommended his excellency prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan as my successor. The royal family has done much for FIFA, I am sure Jordan will make an excellent host for 2030."
The official World Cup account was made to announce: "Sepp Blatter has been investigated for multiple charges of bribery. E-mails between the Qatari foreign ministry and Mr Blatter were found to conspire against some teams."
FIFA is said to be looking into the incidents.
