In the early morning hours of yesterday morning, the official Occupy Wall Street twitter account began sending out advice on how to better your credit score.
According to BetaBeat:
One follower recognized this particular spam from a virus spreading on Facebook and warned the rebels they’d had a breach. But judging by the number of retweets and favorites, not all the freedom fighters were hip to the scam. When the account announced at 4:06 a.m. that it had been hacked and was “working on shutting it down,” a few followers breathed relief. “Yeah, I was wondering why you’d be tweeting about credit reports,” tweeted one Erik Smith
“Freedom fighters”? And then there were the rest of us that had a bit of a giggle.
