Hackers Turn Burger King's Twitter Feed into a McDonald's Ad [UPDATE]

The person whose job it is to tweet about Burger King is probably having a worse day than usual. Hackers dropping shoutouts to seapunk icons and indie rappers have taken over Burger King's Twitter account and turned it into a McDonald's ad, claiming, "We just got sold to McDonalds! Look for McDonalds in a hood near you."

It's all speculation now, but tweets bearing the handle "@DFNCTSC" seem to suggest that the culprits behind the hack belong to the Defonic Team Screen Name Club. DFNCTSC is perhaps best known as the hacking crew that once housed the teenager convicted of cracking into Paris Hilton's Sidekick.

Update: The Burger King Twitter account has been suspended, but not before 20,000-plus new people started following it to watch the hack play out.
