Burger King’s Twitter Feed Hacked

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Internet hackers reportedly took over fast food chain Burger King’s Twitter feed early Monday. Changing the Burger King logo and user name to that of competitor McDonald’s, the hacker or hackers were posting throughout the morning.

Some of the tweets posted during the hacking seem to refer to drug use or music groups. As of Monday morning, Burger King administrators had yet to gain control of their Twitter feed.

San Francisco-based Twitter recently confirmed that they have been the victim of a series of high-profile cyber-attacks against media companies, saying that hackers may have gained access to information on 250,000 of its more than 200 million active users.
