60 Minutes Twitter has been compromised. We are working with Twitter to resolve.— Matthew Polevoy (@MattPol) April 20, 2013
At least 3 CBS-affiliated news accounts have been hacked, apparently by a rabid conspiracy theorist who wants the world to believe that President Obama is aiding Al-Qaeda. Accounts for @60minutes @48hours, and @CBSDenver have all been hacked, some tweeting suspicious links (don’t click on them). Screenshots below.
CBS is apparently working with Twitter to get the situation under control.
