Heh: OWS Twitter Account Hacked

They find it amusing when hackers break into someone else’s account. Not so funny when it happens to them. Ironically, the hacker sent messages about credit scores, something these losers wouldn’t know anything about.

“Millions shocked at how bad their credit scores are. See it Instantly @http://bit.ly/K3uzg8,” the account tweeted early this morning. “A Good Credit Score is 693 & Above See Your Credit Instantly Now !!Check at http://bit.ly/K3uzg8.”

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.

Because having a good credit score obviously means you’re part of the evil 1%.
