Jeep Twitter account hacked
Hacked ... Jeep's official Twitter account.
Jeep's official Twitter account has been hacked, making false tweets for about an hour until the company that handles its social media regained control, says a Chrysler spokesman.
The breach was similar to an incident involving the Burger King fast food chain earlier this week, though it's unclear if the two attacks are linked.
Hackers posted that the Jeep brand had been sold to Cadillac because employees had been caught using pills. They also posted that there would be no more Jeep production.
Chrysler spokesman Ed Garsten says the company's social media agency got help from Twitter to regain control of the account.
He said the brand name was not damaged by the tweets because most people know it was a prank.
