Jeep's Official Twitter Account Hijacked (Just Like Burger King's)

"Sold To Cadillac." By the same crew who did the Burger King hack yesterday.

Posted on

The same people who pulled off a hour-long hijacking of Burger King's account yesterday have struck again, this time taking over Jeep's official Twitter feed. The posts are similar in nature: shoutouts to the same handful of Twitter users, including @lilinternet and @dfntsc, and there are links to many of the same pictures and videos as yesterday.

The hack has lasted nearly an hour. Twitter has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Cadillac has been put in the awkward position of denying involvement:

Just to clarify, Cadillac is not connected to the hack of the @Jeep Twitter account.
