Occupy Wall Street twitter account hacked
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.
