The fandom will never forget the crazy Twitter hack of August 2016.
Fall Out Boy's Twitter account was hacked last night (August 15th) as a mystery user began spamming the band's 2m followers.
Following the now apparently standard hacker move of telling people who to follow, we can safely presume that someone named @Glitching was involved.
They also seemed to pick some kind of weird fight with @KEEMSTAR. Because as we all know, the best place to solve grudges is in the Twitter feed of a famous Chicago-based pop punk band.
Although there was one particular tweet that sent the whole Twitter fandom insane. Ready?

Oh but wait, there's more! Because this hacker cares about more than just a Twenty One Pilots ship.

Yep. Really hope some fangirls didn't realise this was a hack.
Oh what's that? You want more. OK one more...
Anyway, the band haven't commented on the hack but they have reclaimed control of the account, now mainly posting about VMA voting.
