Burger King is no doubt feeling fried at the moment. After the company’s Twitter was hacked on Monday, everyone is taking a close look at the home of the Whopper as someone messed it all up. First reported midday, the Twitter account announced a fake buyout from McDonald’s and then the details started changing. However, McDonald’s immediately announced on Monday they had nothing to do with the hacking.
“We empathize with our @BurgerKing counterparts. Rest assured, we had nothing to do with the hacking,” tweeted McDonalds from their official Twitter account.
The denial tweet is almost better than a build up on a reality show. The moment that brings two of the biggest fast food chains together is started by a fake tweet? Seeing is believing when it comes to the real life situations in the world of fast food.
Burger King was obviously hacked online, the latest scandal in the Twitter world shows just how important new security is needed to keep accounts out of the hands of hackers. While the company has removed the account temporarily to regain control, there isn't any doubt this action will be reviewed by the authorities. The fans deserve a review by Burger King’s mascot The King and his clown rival Ronald McDonald.
