Well the USS Connecticut twitter post was not B.S.:
https://news.usni.org/2021/10/07/breaking-attack-submarine-uss-connecticut-suffers-underwater-in-pacific

This is extra bad as she is a Seawolf Class boat. The Navy only has three of them - with one being an odd duck and configured underwater special ops [USS Jimmy Carter. The other two USS Seawolf and the Connecticut carry a huge number of anti-ship Tomahawk missles. THe other Navy attack subs are Virginia class and carry a significantly smaller amount of Tomahawks. 

It just got a little easier for China to invade Taiwan - depending how bad the damage was. For the Navy to announce it publicly, it must have been bad enough to where it the damage could not be hidden.
