Hackers' posting forces Tweeter to shut down website - The Boston Globe

Sign of the times…

Hackers apparently broke into Tweeter's website yesterday morning and posted a picture of President Bush on the home page with a message about the bankrupt chain's owner and chief restructuring officer. "Don't trust either of them!!!"

The website was taken down shortly after and did not function for most of the day. The incident comes hours after the electronics chain abruptly shut its 60 stores and fired 600 people nationwide just days before a going-out-of business sale was supposed to end. Workers are owed salary, vacation time, and bonuses.
