Insane things can happen in the social media world, which is why many brands are terrified and rightfully so. Burger King’s twitter account got hijacked yesterday. Not only did they change the timeline to look like McDonalds, the anonymous invaders propagated their stream with strange references to drugs and perverted humor.

This is just awful. Even twitter was not spared from hacking. Although, I do wonder if it could be an employee.

I sure hope not, but you will see at the end of the article that this could have been prevented
