Burger King’s Twitter Account Hacked

Hacking Twitter accounts happens all the time. Normally, however, the hacker does something overtly malicious.

This time round, however, it’s just plain odd.

The Burger King Twitter account was hacked and is currently spewing out content promoting McDonalds! But what makes it even more bizarre is that the account appears to be verified.

    And now… Account suspended. Not fixed, just suspended 🙂

    A nice subtle hack that’s gonna generate loads of publicity for Burger King. Everyone’s a winner…

      It’ll be interesting to see what, if any, fall out there’ll be from this.

      Should be amusing for us bystanders though 🙂
