Jeep Twitter account hacked
Bad language, poor grammar and some hilarity ensue
The resulting tweets from the damaged Jeep account have been a pretty brutal, to put it bluntly. Most of the content coming from the hacked account is unpublishable here, using language that is peppered with racial epithets, and poorly worded "shout outs."
In addition to the defamatory tweets themselves, the hackers have significantly altered the layout of the page. Jeep's header image now features a picture of the Cadillac ATS to go along with the Wreath and Crest, some language calling out that car as winning the 2013 North American Car of the Year award, and this gem: "The official Twitter handle for the Jeep® – Just Empty Every Pocket, Sold To Cadillac =[" Also, perhaps in an ode to yesterday's Burger King heist, the background image for the page now features a McDonald's-themed donk. The devil's in the details, we guess.
Stay tuned to @Jeep's feed, as the inevitable shut down, recapture, and public explanation/apology are sure to play out in short order. Don't forget to change your passwords, kids.
Quick update on this one, already. Gizmodo has seemingly traced a link between the Burger King and Jeep hacks; a DJ from New England that uses the name iThug. Untangle the tale further, here.
