‘Occupy is over’: Occupy movement Twitter accounts hacked

Quite a few Occupy-associated Twitter accounts were apparently hacked today, with each delivering the same short message:

occupy-is-over

Legal Insurrection tracked the source of the hack to an administrator whose account was compromised.

A message tweeted from the @occupywallstnyc account claimed that “some corporate goons” were responsible, but that tweet has since been deleted as well. So, corporate goons are off the hook this time — they were probably busy doing something evil somewhere else.

So, Occupy’s not over?

    As I’m typing this it’s 7:30pm PT on Jan 29th. The tweets above are time stamped one or two hours after midnight on Jan 30th. Doesn’t this mean they originated from outside the United States?

    I just noticed that one of them is from “Occupy Perth” – so that makes sense. But the others say Wall Street, Boston, etc, which don’t.

      I think it’s just the person that screencapped them is in a non-US timezone.

        I have no idea what that means – I’m a TwitterIlliterate. But I take it you do and that everything is ok.

    Geee….

    I thought Occupy had all kinds of firewall building, hocus pocus computer and Twitter Geeks, Savants and Geniuses on hand so that their systems were impenetrable.

    Geeks regressing back to biting the heads off of live chickens in 3…2… 1
