Burger King Twitter Account Hacked
Today’s social media lesson: Always have someone watching the company accounts over a long holiday weekend. Burger King’s official Twitter account, which has a following of upward of 100,000 users, was hijacked by hackers on Monday morning, resulting in multiple vulgar tweets streaming from the verified account. It seems to be the handiwork of Anonymous, which is claiming responsibility from its own official Twitter account. Twitter did not respond to a request for comment. Update: As of 10:15 am PT, the Burger King account has been suspended.
