Or was it? (But really, it probably was.)
The Syrian Electronic Army has apparently hacked The Onion’s twitter account, exposing the groups seriously morbid sense of “humor”. “UN retracts report of Syrian chemical weapon use: “Lab tests confirm it is Jihadi body odor”, went one tweet.
Twitter has got to do something about this hacking problem; the TechCrunch article says that two-step verification is in the works, but a few more of these public embarrassments will damage the entire service's credibility. (Also, politicians should take note: Now is probably the best time to say something horrible on Twitter. If even The Onion is getting hacked, accountability for your internet words has got to be at an all-time low.)
