Twitter Has Been Hacked

Not long ago, we received reports that Twitter was hacked. If the screenshots are indication, someone got past Twitter’s defenses. The apparent organization responsible is the “Iranian Cyber Army.”

Here’s what we know: Less than an hour ago, Twitter (Twitter) was changed to the screenshot you see below (thanks Chris and others for the images). Not long after this, Twitter and the status blog were taken down.

For one of the world’s most popular websites to be hacked and taken down, even for a few minutes, is a huge embarrassment. This type of thing should never happen. We are awaiting an explanation.

Twitter is still down, likely due to this hacker.

More as it develops.
