A member of Team SoloMid’s staff appears to have been the victim of a hack.
A lengthy batch of chat logs was released on the Internet last night, appearing to involve TSM’s players and members of the organization’s staff. It has not been confirmed what the nature of the logs are, but it seems Max Olivo, a content creator for the organization, was the person who was hacked.
The logs have not been verified, but a tweet from TSM general manager Leena Xu suggests they are real.
We are aware of the situation and have contacted Twitter. In the mean time please help report the account

Olivo’s Twitter account seems to have been compromised as of late Wednesday night. The account was later wiped clean, and Olivo posted Thursday morning apologizing for being hacked.
Welp, I've learned my lesson. Get 2-step on EVERYTHING. Sorry to anyone who's affected.

We’re in the process of gathering more details and will update the story as we can.
