Church News Twitter feed hacked

Excerpts of Hackers seize Church News Twitter account by Lynn Arave, Deseret News
Hackers hijacked the Church News Twitter account last weekend, and Twitter staffers took down the site early Thursday because the infiltrators had gained total control over the Web site.

"We tried to get it back," he said, but he soon realized that the hacker had even been able to change the password and lock him out.

Craine said the hacker posted some anti-Mormon material on the site earlier this week. "It caused the Deseret News and the LDS Church concern," said Tim Conde, an attorney with Stoel Rives who represented the Deseret News in talks with Twitter officials.

The Church News had operated a site on Twitter for about two months.
