The official Twitter for fast food chain Burger King appears to have been hacked on Monday. The picture for the account was changed to the golden arches of McDonald's and the account is tweeting some decidedly un-corporate friendly things.
The Burger King account, with 85,048 followers, changed its account picture from the actual Burger King logo to that of rival McDonald's a little after noon Eastern Time. The account - still listed under @BurgerKing - has also changed its name to McDonald's.
Recent tweets from the compromised account mention the hacker group Anonymous and LulzSec. @BurgerKing also used the hashtag #OpMadCow, presumably in reference to this apparent hacking operation.
The hackers have also linked to popular hip hop stars and has posted profanity-laded tweets.
Update: The account is currently suspended. Presumably Burger King has noticed and taken action.
