Moments ago the twitter account of the NYC Fire Wire announced that hazardous material teams and emergency service units are responding to an incident at New York City’s Federal Plaza, where two civilians have allegedly been exposed to “white powder.”

The Jacob K. Javits Federal Building at 26 Federal Plaza houses the offices of Department of Homeland Security, FBI’s New York City field office, the Social Security Administration and the US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Curiously, there have no other confirmation of the incident from New York City law enforcement agencies, and the nature of the white powder is unknown. Was another twitter account hacked?
