Burger King loses Twitter account to hackers

In the last hour or so the US Twitter account of global fast food restaurant seems to have been hacked.

To add insult to injury, the account now displays the logo of rival McDonalds and the account description:

BURGER KING® USA official Twitter account. Just got sold to McDonalds because the whopper flopped =[ FREDOM IS FAILURE℠. mcdonalds.com

I'm sure I don't need to remind those who manage social media accounts for large and possibly contentious clients that they need to have decent passwords and should change them regularly....
