Looks like Burger King's Twitter account was hacked


Burger King's Twitter feed appears to have been compromised. Someone went ahead and changed the handle to "McDonald's," announced that McDonald's had purchased Burger King, and changed the avatar to a set of golden arches. The other tweets were, um, interesting.

The person controlling the @BurgerKing account claims to be a part of Anonymous, the infamous hacker organization responsible for the recent cyber attack on the Westboro Baptist Church account.

The other tweets included a Hamburgler comic, a picture of someone shooting up, and a picture of an unappetizing burger.
