Assuming the account was hacked by a 13-year old techno-geek, Fox News’ Twitter account got fried with a butt-load of hilarity earlier today.
Of course, by the time you comb down to the bottom of the list, the language becomess obvious: The kid was obviously Ferris Bueller because his parents bought him a computer instead of a convertible…which is what they bought for his older-sister. Also obvious; Bill O’Reilly will have to aim his sites on all of those “Not So Fair-And-Balanced” computer hackers out there who are willing to damage their reputation for…Umm… Something or other.
In addition to those seen in the thumbnail, Media ITE (story source) included this juicy Tweet that bears mentioning:
“We want to make out with Barack Obama. That’s how much we love him.”
I haven’t laughed that hard since I fried a Novell file server in ’95 by renaming “syscon.exe” to “jerkwad.com”. (Hint: Geek Humor Alert!)
Fox News is claiming that the account didn’t belong to them (so no harm was done). Meanwhile, they went out on a limb to clarify that they had a conversation with the Twitter-Dudes about the incident and that they had the account deleted (because it didn’t belong to them anyway). It’s the power of “Fox News”: They have that kind of juice with Twitter!
