The Big Mac of Twitter Hacks

Posted: Updated:

 

Somebody hacked Burger King's Twitter account yesterday, posting obscene messages and changing its profile picture to a McDonald's logo. The tweets stopped after a little more than an hour. Burger King said it had reached out to Twitter to suspend the account. 

 

Late yesterday, Burger King tweeted: "Interesting day here at BURGER KING, but we're back! Welcome to our new followers. Hope you all stick around!" 

A spokesman for Burger King says the restaurant chain doesn't know who hacked the account. The company says no other social media accounts were affected.

At the beginning of this month, Twitter acknowledged that cyber attackers may have stolen user names and passwords of 250,000 users.
