Hackers changed Burger King's Twitter account to look like McDonalds.
Perhaps, as one Twitter user commented, "Whopper123" isn't a secure password. Whatever password Burger King was using to lock down its Twitter account, hackers figured it out and promptly got to work with a McDonalds themed makeover. The cyber pranksters changed Burger King's Twitter handle and avatar, and posted a series of fake tweets, one of which claimed the fast food joint had been sold to McDonalds.
"We just got sold to McDonalds! Look for McDonalds in a hood near you," a hacked tweet stated.
No such sale has taken place, though for a solid 30 minutes, the hacked account tweeted out messages, photos, and videos making fun of Burger King. One of them showed a young man injecting a syringe into his arm.
Ronald McDonald and his boisterous gang deny involvement.
"We empathize with our @BurgerKing counterparts. Rest assured, we had nothing to do with the hacking," McDonalds stated in a Twitter post of its own.
Burger King had nearly 83,000 followers at the time it was hacked. The verified account has since been suspended.
