Submission + - Burger King Twitter Account Hacked, Rebranded As McDonald's (techweekeurope.co.uk)

judgecorp writes: "Burger King's Twitter account was hacked yesterday, by pranksters who rebranded the feed, tweeting nonsense under the name of Mcdonald's. Today, the account is back under Burger King's control, and McDonald's tweeted a denial that it had anything to do with the incident. Although this sort of event is (we presume) down to slack security by the account holder, it could harm Twitter, as big brands lose trust in the service."
