Most embarrassing Twitter hack ever?

Most embarrassing Twitter hack ever?

It's been a rough couple of weeks for celebrities and businesses on Twitter. First, Taylor Swift's account was taken over by Lizard Squad and then hackers broke into Chipotle's account and posted some very offensive messages. But this is the most surprising hack yet.

Twitter CFO Anthony's Twitter account appeared to be hacked today when it started sending out spam to followers. Earlier in the week, Noto's account began sending out tweets to random users with messages like "This pic of u is so funny lol" followed by a link.

Twitter suspended Noto's account and took care of the problem and now he's back up and running. This isn't the CFO's first Twitter snafu. Last fall, he accidentally tweeted out a private message that was supposed to be a direct message to another user.
