These 10 Social Media "Hacks" Are Totally Worth Your Time

ProTip: get some password protection, three-step verification, the whole deal.

AND if you "accidentally" sent a tweet of some gay porn, you can always blame it on a hack. That seems to be the scapegoat that bids well for most.

Bath salts? In MY Angry Whopper? Say it ain't so! No word yet as to who is behind the hacking, but I think it's safe to say that the folks at the BK PR department are not having a good day.

The tweet in question (which did not feature our lovely hotdog Photoshopping skills) has since been taken down and TWC Austin has issued an apology. It's unclear if this was the result of a hacked or hijacked account, a vengeful employee, or what. Either way, TWC News Austin's 33,000 Twitter followers got an extra helping of meat this week.

Last night, a hacker found his or her way into the social media accounts of at least nine different Major League Baseball Teams, posting status updates and tweets that ranged from the crude to the (admittedly) hilarious. Curse you, illegal criminal of cyberspace, for making me laugh!

All teams have since deleted the offending posts. The Chicago Cubs even followed up with the tweet: "For the record, the #Cubs are big fans of Bill Murray. #NotHacked."

The hacker is still at large (watch out, NHL!)

Update: Deadspin reports that the MLB Facebook and Twitter accounts were not hacked, but were instead at the mercy of a rogue employee working for the "Advanced Media" arm of the MLB (which collectively manages all its teams' online presence).

The posts may have been an inside joke and not meant for public eyes, but Deadspin also notes that employees working for the social media arm of the MLB are grievously underpaid.

The hacker spammed artist Neil Young's twitter feed with WARNING pics and links (and retweets from infamous pr0n sites) before being taken down. The power of social media, everyone!
