Britney Spears' Twitter account hacked

Britney Spears and Barack Obama were amongst 30 celebrities to have their Twitter accounts hacked into over the last few days. The security breach resulted in a number of obscene messages being posted on the popular mini-blog site.

One of the hacker's Tweets on Britney's page read "Hi Yall. Brit here, just wanted to update you all on the size of my ******. It's four feet tall and has razor sharp teeth." While CNN presenter Rick Sanchez's blog featured the message: "I am high on crack right now might not be coming to work today."

The breach comes just days after Twitter was hit by a phishing scam and has led to appeals for the popular site to improve its security measures. While breaking into famous people's accounts is not on, it can lead to some moments of internet gold as illustrated above.
