The Twitter accounts for CBS News programs "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours" were
used by hackers earlier today to send out messages accusing the U.S. of aiding
terrorists, the network confirmed.
"We have experienced problems on Twitter accounts of #60Minutes & @48Hours; We
apologize for the inconvenience; Twitter is resolving issues," read a tweet
from @CBSNews. Read another from @60Minutes: "PLEASE NOTE: Our Twitter account
was compromised earlier today. We are working with Twitter to resolve."
Bogus messages tweeted from the hacked accounts included this one from the
Exclusive: Terror is striking the #USA and #Obama is Shamelessly
in Bed with Al-Qaeda.
