Burger King's Twitter account Hamburgled, announces sale to McDonald’s


In a move that will excite McRib lovers the world over, the official Burger King Twitter account announced this morning that the company had been sold to McDonald's as a result of persistent drug-use by Burger King employees.

Fortunately for lovers of its flame-broiled Whoppers, no such sale has occurred. The blue-ticked account has been hacked by parties unknown. The hackers are giving regular shouts out to "DFNCTSC," the Defonic Team Screen Name Club, a group of eight to 12 hackers that briefly found fame in 2005 after hacking Paris Hilton's Sidekick and posting her contacts online.

When asked if DFNCTSC was responsible for the hack, however, the account replied "nope #lulzsec foo[l]," resurrecting the name of the Anonymous-affiliated group that made a big splash in 2011. It later emerged that LulzSec's leader, Hector "Sabu" Monsegur, was working for the FBI in secret.
