Fox News Politics Twitter Feed Hacked [guardian.co.uk]
Fox News has apparently fallen victim to hacking, with its politics Twitter feed repeatedly announcing President Barack Obama had been shot dead.

@foxnewspolitics began tweeting the information to its 33,000 followers at about 2am local time, with the posts rapidly being shared around the internet.

The rogue tweets appeared to begin after the account sent a message saying Fox had just "regained full access to our Twitter account".

So where is the difference? Fake news as usual on Fox. If they had started tweeting actual news and facts, then somebody might have noticed.

I wondered if this was a viral message meant to get them more followers.
