The account for the temporary hospital, which looks after coronavirus patients, was infiltrated this afternoon.
The tweet, posted from an iPhone, was shared at 1:07pm (BST) before being deleted minutes later.
The post contained an image of BBC News graphics, with the words ‘oh fuck what now’ written in place of a headline.
Speaking to TenEighty, an NHS spokesperson confirmed this evening that the post was part of a hack of the hospital’s Twitter account.
No additional tweets or statements have been issued by NHS Nightingale online since the attack was made.
TenEighty has contacted NHS London for further comment.
