If you were browsing the Twitter site last night, you may have noticed that some mischief was afoot. Apparently, control of the micro-blogging sensation fell into the hands of a group known as the Iranian Cyber Army. They posted the above image, containing this message:
Iranian Cyber Army

U.S.A. Think They Controlling And Managing Internet By Their Access, But They Don’t, We Control And Manage Internet By Our Power, So Do Not Try To Stimulation Iranian Peoples To….
NOW WHICH COUNTRY IN EMBARGO LIST? IRAN? USA?

Twitter have since sorted the problem, dismissing it as merely a DNS hack rather than anything too serious. Still, could have been a far more dangerous situation for the ever-growing social media site had the hackers got hold of the API.
