Hacktivists Hijack Twitter.

Quote:
Attackers identifying themselves as the "Iranian Cyber Army" succeeded in hijacking Twitter's DNS records late on Thursday. The twitter.com domain and several other subdomains were pointed to a Web page displaying a political message taunting the United States.
The attack happened under the cover of night, at around 10:15 PM on Thursday. Users who accessed twitter.com for about an hour were greeted by a black page with an image of the Iranian flag. "THIS SITE HAS BEEN HACKED BY IRANIAN CYBER ARMY," the header of the page displayed along with a Gmail address.

Well, isn't that nice, they left their e-mail address, maybe they're accepting fan-mail requests to finally bring down Facebook as well so people will actually start calling their friends and talk on the phone instead of ROFLing at their statuses and playing FarmVille (Jesus ******* Christ )
XD
It's a touchdown for hackers and for once I'm glad. Perhaps lunatics like this one will be less seen on the internet.

lucky that gmail will be able to handle the onslaught of hatemail.
also (SRSLY), who uses FarmVille? FarmTown is the way to go. better graphics, does not require irl money to get fuel for equipment, and you can hire minions to do most of the dirty work.
