Burger King's Twitter Got Hacked And Tweeted Crazy McDonald's Messages

Burger King’s Twitter account got hacked for more than an hour and tweeted out some crazy McDonald’s messages. 

The hackers changed @BurgerKing’s name to “McDonalds.” 

Hacker group Anonymous took responsibility for the prank. The tweet calls the hacking “#OPMadCow.”

Burger King told the Associated Press that the account had been hacked, and it plans to post an apology later today. The spokesman said he hopes the account will be up and running soon. 

Here’s what the Twitter page looked like:
