Yesterday, several of the more “popular” people’s accounts on twitter were hacked including Barack Obama, Fox News, and Leo Laporte.  It appers to have been a problem with how they managed the admin privileges.  Leo Laporte has a great post about this as well as an interview with Twitter’s John Adams here.  The unedited video of that interview is here.

    They were kinda asking for it using a password as weak as “happiness”. I know people that fell for the Obama message that was sent out.

    And I agree John, the Macrumors hack today was crazy. I was watching their macworld coverage, and all this crazy stuff started coming in. It was too bad because it was the only live feed that I found that worked on my phone. I was stuck in a meeting and couldn’t watch the other coverage.
