    Hi All:

    Here are the two big examples in just the past two days. Is it a twitter problem or is it something else?

    Jeep gets owned by Cadillac​

    @Jeeps reply after the fact?

    Hacking: Definitely not a #Jeep thing. We’re back in the driver’s seat!

    Burger King now owned by McDonalds​

    Neither company released anything official yet but quickly regained of their accounts and straightened things out soon afterwards… I think ;)

    Based on today's news, it's probably just the Chinese army amusing themselves during a lunch break. No biggie.

    There was an article about some Java vulnerability that hackers used to infiltrate some Macs at Facebook among others. Java got patched a couple of weeks ago on my PC, and Apple finally released a patch last night.

    I guess my Twitter isn't worth the effort! :p Glad they got their issues straightened out quickly!
